GOLDEN GATE, Fla.- The Collier County Sheriff's Office is investigating a home invasion that happened on the 2400 block of 4th Ave NE at 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night.

According to the incident report, a hysterical female caller told 911 operators she had just been robbed. When deputies arrived, the woman was outside with a man and two small children, in front of the garage. They instructed her to walk toward the road, which she did. The man, later identified as her roommate, ran into the house for unknown reasons.

The woman said she was in her bedroom with the children when the power went out. A minute later, two people came storming into the room, ordering her to lay face down on the floor with the children. She said the subjects had flashlights.

At the time of the incident, the man told deputies he was in the shower and didn't know what was happening, until her heard the woman screaming.

Money, auto parts and other items were stolen during the home invasion.

The investigation continues. If you have information about this crime, you are asked to call SWFL Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
