COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Police need your help apprehending the latest suspects in a home invasion. It happened at 710 44th Street around 11:25 Wednesday night.

Police say two black males forced their way into the home of two Hispanic men. 

The victims were ordered to the floor at gunpoint.  The suspects, wearing all black and black masks, reportedly took a small amount of cash and two 32" televisions.   No one was injured. The suspects were last seen running on foot.  Police believe the assailants had a getaway car parked nearby.

Columbus Police say home invasions are on the rise.

The last one happened on Morehouse Street in March.  The family was sleeping when the suspects barged in and took their electronics and car.  It was later recovered on Cusseta Road.

To protect yourself from home invasions, police say there isn't much you can do since most suspects kick the door in.  Lt. Warren Dunlap suggests that neighbors look out for each other and if you see something suspicious, call 911. 

If you have any information on about this crime that could lead to an arrest, contact Columbus Police at 706-653-3400.
