The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a home invasion and assault which occurred early this morning in the Mission Viejo Apartment Complex. The two occupants of the targeted apartment were awakened by a knock at the door at approximately 1:30 AM.

According to statements from the victims, they observed two white females outside of the residence. The first victim opened the door and one of the females asked for a person by name. The resident replied that that person did not live there. At that time, a masked male, race unknown, appeared from a previously non-visible location and began striking the victim with a pistol. As the victim was being attacked, a second masked person, described as a black male, entered the apartment and pointed a pistol at the second victim.

The attack lasted for a very brief period of time after which the suspects fled on foot from the area. The first victim was taken to Deaconess Hospital for treatment of the injuries sustained in the assault. The second victim was uninjured.

The investigation is continuing and anyone with any information on the incident is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 421-6339.
