COLUMBIA — Two teenagers were victims of a home invasion by two armed people Wednesday in a northeast Columbia neighborhood.

At 1:27 a.m. two armed people forced their way into the home, located in the 2900 block of North Willowborook Road, and ransacked it, according to a Columbia Police Department news release. Inside the house were two males, ages 17 and 18, and they were not hurt.

A vehicle was among the items stolen from the residence, the release said. The suspects were described as two males in their early 20s, 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, with slender builds. Both were armed with handguns.

The investigation by the Columbia police is ongoing, the release said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call CrimeStoppers at 875-84777.
