Residents fight back in Lenoir County home invasion

Posted: Updated:
KINSTON, N.C. - Two suspects are wanted in an overnight home invasion.

It happened at a home on Walter Chestnut Drive in Lenoir County.

Deputies say the pair were confronted by one of the residents after he was awakened by the suspects breaking in. When confronted, one of the suspects struck the male resident in the head with a hammer. After demanding money from the residents, the male resident fought the attackers by removing the left of a table and striking the suspects in the head, forcing them to flee the home.

A canine search failed to locate the two. They're described as  two males (unknown race), in their late 20’s, wearing dark hoodies, and dark colored sweatshirts.  One suspect was described as taller than the other.  If you have any information about the incident, contact the Sheriff’s Office at 252-559-6140.

Sheriff Chris Hill said, “We are doing everything we possibly can to find these two intruders as well as the armed robbery suspects that robbed the two stores over the weekend.  I do not believe the home invasion robbers are the same as the store suspects.”
