Police investigating home invasion

Lethbridge Regional Police are investigating a home invasion after masked men entered a south side residence.

On August 8, 2015 at approximately 7:40 a.m. police responded to a report of a home invasion along the 700 block of 19 Street South. A male and female were at home at the time and heard the subjects force their way inside and begin rummaging around. The male occupant confronted two subjects and they subsequently fled from the home. No one was injured and nothing was taken.
