Police release sketch in home invasion

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
GAINESVILLE - Gainesville Police have generated a composite sketch in hopes of finding the suspects responsible for a Monday afternoon home invasion.

Police Corporal Kevin Holbrook said investigators believe the three to four men, described only as Hispanic, had intended on burglarizing the Willow Ridge Circle home. Instead they found a female adult at home.

Holbrook said they forced her into a bedroom at knife point. She was also forced to keep her head down, according to Holbrook.

"(She was) unable to look at any of the other suspects, so we were only able to have the one composite sketch completed by an investigator," Holbrook said.

Investigators said the men went through the house and took an undisclosed number of items. The victim was not injured.

The suspect vehicle is described as a white Chevrolet Tahoe with black painted rims.

Police asked that anyone with information on the case call the Gainesville Police Department at (770)-534-5252. The anonymous TIPS Line is (770)-533-5873.
