ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Arrests were made Thursday morning in connection with an armed home invasion near the University of Central Florida, according to deputies.

The home invasion was reported at 1:51 a.m. at the Mercury 3100 apartments, formerly known as The Village at Alafaya Club, on Alafaya Club Drive near Alafaya and Lokanotosa trails.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, intruders forced their way into an apartment and demanded items at gunpoint. No one was injured.

Deputies located the culprits' vehicle, which traveled into Seminole County, according to authorities.

The assailants were apprehended and the stolen items were recovered, deputies said.

No other details, including how many people were arrested, have been released.

Juanita Grazon was walking her dog on Thursday morning when she heard what happened to her neighbor.

"It's actually pretty terrifying," she said. "Since the community is pretty open, I've seen a couple of things but nothing crazy like that."
