According to police in Newton, the search is on for two suspects who were involved in an armed home invasion on Monday. The Police Department arrived on the scene after hearing reports of an armed home invasion on Harvey Place in West Newton around 11:45 p.m.

After officers arrived, they discovered two females and a male in their 20's outside their home after the apparent robbery. At this point, the residents did not know if the suspects were still inside, but when police entered the home they did not find anyone.

According to the victim's statement, they heard banging and seconds later two masked men ran through the home, one carrying a semi-automatic handgun. The suspects ordered two of the residents to the ground and bound their hands, and then the third victim was taken through the house and then bound. The preliminary investigation has led police to believe that the invasion was not a random attack.
