Home invasion suspects cut woman with box cutter

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - Georgetown Police are searching for the two men they believe forced their way into a home with a handgun and a box cutter.

The home invasion and armed robbery was reported at a home on the 1200 block of Church Street around 11 a.m. Monday.

After knocking on the door of the home, police believe the two black male suspects forced their way into the home, demanding money from the 56-year-old man and 31-year-old woman inside.

Not giving in to those demands, the suspects reportedly forced the female victim into a back bedroom, cutting her with the box cutter until she revealed where the money was.

The suspects are described as black males. One of them is between 20 and 30 years of age, standing between 5'10" and 6' tall and weighing around 200 pounds. The other man is between 5''8" and 5'9" tall, weighing 180 pounds.

Both suspects were wearing jeans with a black hoodie and a mask at the time.

The female victim was transported to the Georgetown Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Investigator John Gregory and the Georgetown Police Department at 843-545-4300 or call the TIP line at 843-545-4400.
