The armed home invasion happened around 3:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of Geneva Way.

A man told News 6 reporter Ezzy Castro that he, his fiancee and his roommate were in the house when the assailants broke a window to access a nearby door.

The man said his roommate got into a fight with one of the culprits and was injured. The roommate was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The intruders stole gold chains and money, according to the victim.

Apopka police said they're investigating a report of a home invasion, but have not released any details.
