Union County deputies search for armed home invasion suspect

CORRYTON (WATE) - The Union County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man suspected in a home invasion Wednesday morning.

Deputies say E-911 dispatch received a call around 9:55 a.m. Wednesday from a homeowner who said a man wearing a black ski mask had forced his way into the home with a handgun.

The intruder demanded the homeowner to "give him everything they had." The homeowner says a struggle began between the intruder, the homeowner and another man who was visiting the home.

After the brief struggle, the intruder ran to a nearby red vehicle.

Deputies quickly responded and searched for the vehicle, but were unable to locate it.

No injuries were reported and nothing was taken from the home.

Anyone that may have seen anything related to this incident or have any information is asked to call the Sheriff's Hotline at (865) 992-2019.
