CANTON A home invasion attempt may have been unsuccessful, but the invaders blasted out their victim’s patio door and damaged a neighbor’s door in the process.
Now police are seeking the public’s help in locating the gunmen.
Police believe two men with guns tried to force open a heavy steel door to a Skyline Terrace Apartments building in the 700 block of Alan Page Drive SE just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, but a man inside was able to keep them from getting inside.
The gunmen then blasted shots into a sliding glass door to an apartment, striking the apartment’s couch and living room walls, said Police Capt. Dave Davis. The gunmen also heavily damaged a neighbor’s patio door.
Then they fled.
Police called to the scene summoned the help of a police K-9 to track the suspects, but the gunmen were able to get away.
