Authorities are searching for two suspects involved in a home invasion in North Augusta on Thursday morning, according to the North Augusta Department of Public Safety.
The incident happened about 10:30 a.m. at a home on Atomic Road, according to Lt. Tim Thornton, a spokesman for North Augusta Public Safety.
Two residents, a male and a female, told officers two men knocked on the door of the home and then forced their way in, Thornton said. The suspects, who were armed with firearms, fled the home on foot.
The Aiken County Bloodhound Tracking Team was in the area searching for the suspects. Thornton said the first suspect is described as a black male wearing a white shirt, dark pants and a do-rag. A description wasn’t available for the second suspect.
Paramedics were on the scene providing medical attention to the victims, Thornton said. The extent of their injuries has not been determined.
