Home Invasion Reported

An overnight home invasion is under investigation in northern Johnston County. Around midnight, a lone suspect reportedly kicked in the back door to a home in the 6000 block of Highway 231, Middlesex.

Once inside, the suspect went into the bedroom of a woman staying in the home then left. Authorities said the suspect did not display any weapons.

The young woman was not harmed.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, which they said was not random.  Investigators also recovered some evidence left behind at the scene by the suspect.
