GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Police say two men invaded an elderly woman’s home at a Greenville apartment complex.
The home invasion happened around 6:50 p.m. Monday at Bell Roper Apartments.
Police say a white man and black man wearing bandannas rang the doorbell of the elderly woman’s home.
When the victim answered the door, the suspects pushed her out of the way, and forced their way in while holding a handgun.
Police say they made off with the victim’s medication.
The victim suffered minor injuries.
The home invasion remained under investigation and police were still searching for suspects as of Tuesday morning.
Following the home invasion, police are reminding people who wear Fentanyl patches to wear them in a discreet form or manner while out in public.
“If they have to use the patches in a place that is visible, be vigilant in your surroundings especially when leaving somewhere,” police said in a news release.
People are also urged to be careful when picking up medications at the pharmacy so others don’t overhear or know what you’re picking up.
