One man received minor injuries Friday night after two men invaded a couple's home and robbed them, according to the Rock County Sheriff?s Department.
On Friday at 10:54 p.m., Rock County deputies, along with police, fire, and EMS personnel from Edgerton, were dispatched to a report of a home invasion and armed robbery on West Miles Road in Fulton Township.
Police said a man and his wife were home when two men wearing dark-colored ski masks entered the house through an unlocked door, held both homeowners hostage at gunpoint, and demanded access to a safe.
Investigators do believe that the house was specifically targeted by the robbers.
"Based on statements that were made by the suspects when they entered the residence," Rock County Capt. Jude Maurer explained, "there were specific demands made which leads us to believe that there was some inside knowledge as to what they were looking for in the residence."
