KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knoxville Police Department is looking for four people they say used pepper spray on victims during a home invasion.
KPD officers responded to a home on Dance Ave. around 9:45 p.m. to investigate a reported robbery.
Victims told officers that four suspects - two men and two women- pushed their way in the house and demanded money.
During the robbery, two victims inside the house were physically assaulted, and all of four people inside were sprayed with pepper spray.
Two victims were taken to the U.T. Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
At this time we have limited suspect/vehicle descriptions; the KPD Violent Crimes unit is investigating.
