Police investigate Kissimmee home invasion

No injuries reported in Michigan Avenue incident

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Police are investigating a home invasion in Kissimmee.

The incident was reported at 1 a.m. Wednesday at the Essex Park Villas in the 1800 block of Michigan Avenue.

Police said no injuries were reported.

Neighbors told News 6 that the suspects kicked down the door of a unit and tied up the victims.                     

Kissimmee police would not confirm the information, however.

Another neighbor told News 6 she heard a loud noise, people running, and someone yelling, "go, go, go."                    

"This is an active investigation and no additional details are available," Kissimmee police said in a news release.

News 6 watched as investigators walked in and out of a unit on the second floor all day. Video from the scene showed a home with a broken window and investigators taking pictures through the broken glass.

It's unclear if the window was broken during the home invasion.

News 6 also saw the door frame was cracked. The family inside the unit did not want to talk to us.

Kissimmee PD Crime Scene Units were out at the scene. Investigators collected several bags of evidence from inside the apartment.

News 6 also saw crime scene investigators with Orlando Police assisting with the investigation. Authorities are not saying why they were called out to help.

Pastor Nebby Gomez drove up on the scene Wednesday morning. He said he has served this community for 20 years and was shocked to learn about the home invasion.

"You see the home and you see people being invaded and you say, 'Well, if that happens to them it could happy to anybody,'" Gomez said.

Police haven't released any suspect information. They also aren't saying if the suspects stole anything.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
