BURLINGTON, N.C. — Police are investigating after a home invasion early Saturday in Burlington.

On Saturday at 4:20 a.m., police responded to a home on Pine Street in reference to a burglary and robbery.

The suspects entered the residence while the three adult and two young children were sleeping.  Two of the three suspects had black in color handguns.  The third did not display a gun.

The suspects came in and demanded money.  The suspects stole electronics and jewelry from the residence after they could not get money from the victims.

A K9 track led to a nearby street where a vehicle may have been parked.

None of the victims were physically injured during the incident.
