PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- The Charlotte County Sheriff is investigating a home invasion robbery that happened Tuesday night at a Punta Gorda residence. Victims reported that two masked men forced their way into their house and demanded money.
The call came in at about 11:30 p.m. from the victims who said two white males dressed in all black clothing and wearing ski masks forced their way into their Sunshine Blvd. home. One of the men was armed with a black handgun and the other was armed with a black long gun, possibly a rifle.
