Possible suspect detained after resident hurt in home invasion

Police have detained a man possibly involved in a home invasion near 55th Avenue and Missouri. Officers are still looking for more suspects.

According to officers, a man was leaving for work around 4:45 a.m. when he heard someone trying to break into his home at Glendale Cascade.

"We hear somebody try and open it, and I tell my wife better call police, call 9-1-1," said Leogardo Enrique, one of the home invasion victims.

As he tried to keep the suspects out, his wife called 911.

Unfortunately, the suspects were able to get into the home and injure the man with a baseball bat

"While he was on the line those subjects did force their way into the home and assaulted the male inside the home, they struck him in the head," said Glendale Police spokesperson David Vidaure.

The suspects were allegedly looking for a safe, but the residents told them they don't own one. 

"They open it and put me on the floor, and they start asking me for money; where's the safe, where's the safe, and I don't have no safe," said Enrique.

When officers arrived, the suspects took off.

Both residents were treated at the scene and didn't need to go to a hospital.

Police are searching the area and believe the suspects are nearby.

One man was detained after he appeared to be hiding, didn't cooperate and was subsequently bit by a police K-9.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

More suspects were reportedly caught, but more information on them hasn't been released. 

The family is now holding tight that justice will prevail.
