Women Forced to the Ground During Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WRIC)—The Colonial Heights Police Department is investigating a home invasion that occurred early Thursday morning.

At approximately 12:10 a.m. on Feb. 27, two white males burst into a home on the 400 block of Dupuy Avenue and forced two women to get on the floor.

No one was hurt and police say the men didn't take anything, but the two men involved are still on the run.

Neighbors say they are thankful no one was hurt, but are still worried by the heinous act.

"We were in the house watching TV and tons of cops were coming down the road and sirens blaring," says neighbor Jill Batz. "It bothers me. It troubles me because I am a real American, I believe in America and I don't understand this America."

Batz says she and her roommate already take precautions to protect themselves. She says she feels prepared if something like this were to ever happen to her.

"Dead bolts… steel frame doors… everything like that. I come out a lot and watch the neighbors and check and check on the neighbors and see if there are any changes. I am a Vietnam vet, so you come through my door I am going to do everything I can to stop you."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Crime Solvers by calling 804-748-0660 or texting "WATSON" plus the tip to 274637.
