Franklin Police are investigating after a home invasion in the 1500 block of Railroad Avenue on Monday, October 13th.

Police say they were called to the residence around 11:20 p.m. for a reported robbery in progress.

When police arrived, they learned that the victim was in bed asleep when she heard someone knocking on the door. When she asked who was there, no one answered.

The victim cracked the door and three men forced their way into the home. One of the men pointed a rifle or shotgun to the victim's head and demanded money. The other two men were reportedly armed with handguns.

The victim told the men she didn't have any money and the men left after approximately 15 minutes.

Neither the victim nor her teenage daughter were harmed.

The men were all described as black males in their 20's. One was wearing a grey hoodie and one was wearing a black hoodie. One suspect had dreadlocks and was wearing a white mask that covered his mouth and chin.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Franklin Police Department at 757-562-8575 or Franklin Crime Solvers at 757-562-8599.
