2 suspects being sought for an occupied residential burglary in Magnolia

Officers responded to a report of an occupied burglary at a house in the 3300 block of 38 Ave W in Magnolia.  This morning just shortly after 9:00 a.m., the victim reported that she was asleep in her bedroom when she heard the door bell ring 3 times.

The victim stated that the bedroom door next to her bedroom opened up, and then her bedroom door opened up.  The victim hid in her bed, under her covers, until the suspects removed the covers and exclaimed that someone was in the house.

The suspects ran out of the house in a westward direction away from the scene.  Officers arrived and canvassed the neighborhood on foot and located two witnesses who observed the suspects running from the scene.

Officers conducted an area check with negative results.  Officers found that the suspects gained entry inside the home by prying open the back door. 

Suspects only described as two black males in their 20s.

West Precinct Burglary detectives responded and processed the scene. The investigation continues.
