MANATEE COUNTY – Authorities are investigating an early morning home invasion in southern Manatee County.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Department, two suspects kicked open the door to a home at Hidden Hollow Condos on Sandner Drive just before 3 am.

The suspects asked a female victim sleeping on the couch where the money was and if she was alone. She told them her two friends were asleep upstairs, at which point the suspects fled the scene empty handed.

The suspects are described as two black males, about 16 to 18 years old, and five feet seven inches tall. They were both wearing dark hoodies and long dark pants and there were no visible weapons.
