Updated: Two Seriously Wounded in Home Invasion
A Dunedin couple are hospitalized after a home invasion turned violent early Monday morning. Authorities do not believe the incident is random.
A Dunedin residence with a history of drug-related police calls was invaded early this morning, leaving the residents hospitalized after a violent attack by the culprits.
Deputies report that at roughly 5:30 a.m. today, assailants entered the house on Chicago Avenue without forced entry. An altercation ensued, with a woman being pistol-whipped and a man stabbed, leaving both seriously wounded.
The two victims were transported to a local hospital, where they are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office stated the residence has a history of "drug-related calls" which, combined with the physical evidence at the scent, leads authorities to believe the incident was not random.
