CMPD searches for suspects in east Charlotte home invasion

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Wednesday were searching for suspects involved in the home invasion and robbery of an east Charlotte apartment.

Two suspects armed with a handgun forced their way into an apartment in the 1400 block of Wembley around 4 p.m. Tuesday and ransacked the apartment for electronics and cash, according to a police report.

One suspect bound three victims who were present during the robbery with power cords and watched over them, while the other stole money, a flat-screen television, video game systems and accessories, computer equipment and cell phones the report shows.

The suspects also stole the victims’ 2008 Dodge Magnum as one of their getaway cars, according to the report.

No one was injured during the robbery.
