NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police are searching for two armed suspects who forcefully entered a home and assaulted two women in south Nashville.

Investigators said the suspects, wearing masks over their faces, entered the home on Sadler Avenue at Glenrose Avenue shortly after 3 a.m. Monday.

Upon entering the residence, the suspects discovered one woman home sleeping and they reportedly assaulted her.  During the alleged assault, a second female arrived home and was also assaulted.

The suspects ransacked the home and one of the victim's vehicles, taking several undisclosed items, before fleeing on foot.

Officers and K9 units were unable to track the suspects.

Detectives questioned the victims and did not believe the women were targeted.

A responding officer told Nashville's News 2 it appeared to be a random home invasion.

"No shots were fired in the home. They were not sexually assaulted as far as we know at this time," Captain Ken Walburn said.

At least one of the victims received minor injuries in the incident.

Police said there is not any recent history of this type of crime in the neighborhood.

Nashville's News 2 spoke with nearby resident and Belmont college student Elyse Thomas who said she was unaware of the crime.  

"Hearing a story of a home invasion involving a single woman, well that is another single woman's worst nightmare," she said. "To be assaulted in your own home where you are suppose to be safe, well it is a lot to process."

Thomas added, "You expect to be safe in your home. It makes you wonder if I need another bolt on my door. [It] makes you nervous."

Police are searching for two suspects. One is described as a white man in his mid 20s, approximately five feet, 10 inches tall.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the color red on the front and blue jeans.

He also had a light colored bandana covering his face, an ace bandage on his left hand and a glove on his right hand.

The other suspect is described as a white male with blonde hair, approximately five feet, nine inches tall and roughly 180 pounds.

He was wearing a white and blue shirt with blue jeans at the time of the incident.

He also had a black ski mask over his face.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro police or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
