The search continues for two men behind a violent home invasion. Police say the two had guns when they broke into an apartment on Cambridge Drive on Lexington's west side.

Four people were staying in the apartment unit, which is on the third level of the building, when the two men showed up threatening and fighting the people inside.

"They forced their way in the door. One of them was armed with an assault rifle and one with a handgun; struck one of the victims with the butt of the rifle," says Lt. Rodney Sherrod with Lexington Police.

Police say before the two intruders made their way into the apartment, a woman had been at the door, leaving it unlocked.

"Apparently the female was at the door and the door was opened. At that point the male subjects forced their way into the apartment," Sherrod says.

The man who lives in the apartment unit says three others were staying with him. He says the man who was hit in the head knew the woman who'd been there.

Police found that woman in an SUV near the apartments and took her in for questioning

"She was just a witness, and we're trying to ascertain what exactly happened," Sherrod says.

The intruders roughed up a couple of other men who were in the apartment, leaving some scrapes and bruises on them. But they took off without stealing anything.

As of noon Wednesday, police say they've finished questioning the woman they took to headquarters overnight. They say she faces no charges.

The man hit with a gun went to the hospital with head injuries. He was released late Wednesday morning.
