CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Chesterfield County Police are looking for three suspects involved in alleged home invasion that took place Wednesday afternoon in the Eagle Cove neighborhood.

Police said two teenagers were inside a home along the 20000 block of Oak River Court when two suspects kicked down a door and took various items from the home. Police said the suspects fled in a red SUV with a roof rack.

Neighbors told WTVR CBS 6 off-camera that the break-in comes as a shock and that the neighborhood is normally pretty friendly. Neighbors also said children were outside across the street during the time of the robbery.

“That is scary because children can’t defend themselves. Even getting caught up in the crossfire if something like that would happen would be a tragedy," one neighbor said.

Police said no one was injured.

The first suspect was described as a white man wearing a black hoodie and black sweatpants. The second suspect was a black man wearing a black hoodie and Ray-Ban sunglasses. The third suspect was described as a black man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.
