By Shavonne Walker
SALISBURY — Two men broke into a home on Lilly Avenue early Thursday and identified themselves as police officers, then threatened the homeowners with guns, according to the Salisbury Police Department.
The owners were not injured, police said.
The break-in occurred at 1:14 a.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Lilly Avenue, just around the corner from Walgreens on West Innes Street.
The homeowners were asleep when they heard a knock on the front door, police said. Then suddenly, someone kicked in the front door.
There were at least two suspects who had guns and demanded money and other items, the homeowners told police. Investigators did not say what other items the men demanded.
The victims were told to put their faces to the floor, and the robbers pointed guns at the backs of their heads, a police report said.
One homeowner told police she was told by the suspect that he had a gun and he would shoot her.
An investigator said it is possible the suspects had the wrong house, but detectives have some strong leads.
The investigation is continuing.
