Deputies investigating Christmas Eve home invasion
SALISBURY — A gunman forced his way into a Cedar Drive apartment on Christmas Eve and pointed a gun at a woman and her daughter.
According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, a man knocked on the door of the apartment about 6 p.m.
When the boyfriend of one of the residents opened the door, the report said, the man struck him in the face with the handgun and went inside.
The man then pointed the gun at the home’s owner and her daughter and asked where the money was.
The woman said she didn’t have any money, the report said, and the man quickly searched the home before running back out the front door.
No money was reported stolen during the incident.
The man was last seen getting into what is believed to be a brown, four-door Chevrolet Blazer with tinted windows.
It was last seen traveling in the direction of Airport Road.
Deputies are continuing to investigate the incident.
