CINCINNATI - Hamilton County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a home invasion that took place Friday afternoon in Anderson Township.
Deputies are searching for two suspects who entered an apartment at gunpoint at 6931 Goldengate Drive. A call came in to dispatchers at about 1:30 p.m. Friday.
Investigators say a female apartment tenant answered her door at about 1:25 p.m. and found someone she knew with his arms in the air as if he were being robbed. A second suspect, who was wearing a red bandana, showed a firearm and forced his way into the apartment, at which point he screamed, "Where's the money?" and engaged in a struggle with a male tenant of the same apartment.
The second suspect's bandana came off, and the tenants realized they knew him as well. The tenants said the two men knew each other. Police are considering the first man as a suspect and not as a potential hostage because of his actions during the home invasion.
Both suspects fled the scene, with the gunman leaving in a black Mazda Protege driven by a woman that neither tenant recognized. The other suspect fled on foot to a wooded area near the Goldengate apartment complex.
No one was injured during the incident, and officers are still determining if the suspects removed anything from the apartment.
The suspects' names and descriptions of their appearance have not been made available.
