Home Invasion Reported in NW Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Two men armed with guns forced their way into a northwest Rochester home early Saturday.
A Rochester Police Dept. spokesman says the men knocked on the door of a residence in the 4500 block of 13 Ave NW around 1:15 AM Saturday and then forced their way inside when it was opened. One of the men pointed a gun at the head of the woman who answered the door. The other woman in the home was in bed and was "startled by a man standing in her bedroom with a rifle pointed at her face." The spokesman says the men demanded to know where “the money and drugs” were. One of the men reportedly said, "Your people robbed me, now I’m robbing you.”
They rummaged through the residence before leaving with a backpack and laptop. They were described as black and in their 20s.
The two females were not harmed.
