The incident occurred at 1:19 a.m. on Village Drive in Havre de Grace, police said.

Two armed men forced entry into a Havre de Grace home Thursday morning, assaulted two people inside and demanded money, Havre de Grace police said.

At 1:19 a.m. police received a call that a home invasion was in progress on the 400 block of Village Drive.

Police said that two men, each armed with a handgun, broke into the residence through a back door and demanded money. At least one of the occupants of the house was asleep and awakened by the break-in, according to the report.

AMEN Ryan! Hey folks you must not be watching the news this stuff happens everywhere! Other States, towns. Havre de Grace is a small town so whe something like this does happen everyone one or most everyone in town knows about it. KEEP THE DOORS LOCKED, and make sure you know where your gun is just in case you have to use it.
