We now know more information concerning a home invasion reported in Aiken County on Atomic Road.

According to Lieutenant Tim Thornton, a North Augusta Department of Public Safety Officer was flagged down by a pedestrian on the 100 block of Atomic Road and was directed to a home at 168 Atomic Road.

Reportedly, 2 black males knocked on the door of the residents, and when the residents (a man and a woman) opened the door, the suspects reportedly forced their way in and assaulted both residents at gunpoint. After stealing some items they fled on foot.

The Aiken County Bloodhound Tracking Team tracked a potential trail, but the suspects have not been found.

The female victim was transported to a hospital for additional medical attention.

One of the suspects is described as wearing a white do-rag, black t-shirt and camouflage pants. There is not a description on the second suspect.

The home invasion occurred between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning, according to Lt. Thornton.
