ORLANDO – The Orange County Sheriff's Office is currently looking for two men who were involved in a home invasion in Orlando.

According to deputies, the two men, both around 20 to 25 years old, entered a home at 3513 Forestdale Drive on Sunday evening and took the personal belongings of the victim, a 45-year-old man. 

Deputies said the victim was in his bedroom inside his shared home when the two men broke down his bedroom door. Deputies said that one man held the victim down while the other stole his personal belongings. 

Off camera, the victim told News 6 he doesn't know the two men who robbed him, but was able to get a close look at one of the attackers.

He said crime is happening all over and it’s gotten so bad where he lives that he plans to move next week.

The men fled the scene of the crime, and deputies are currently trying to identify the robbers. 

Deputies said the victim was not injured during the encounter.
