Three male suspects forcibly entered a residence on Northeast 35th Street in Williston, and committed the offenses of home invasion, attempted robbery and aggravated battery on Feb. 11, said Lt. Evan Sullivan of the Levy County Sheriff's Office.

At 11:45 p.m., three suspects forcibly entered a residence at the Mack Apartments. There were three adult victims and four juveniles ranging from 3 months to 8 years old inside the residence.

One suspect put a gun to the victim's head and demanded money. Another suspect struck a second victim in the head causing a contusion, Sullivan said, and a third suspect ordered another victim from the bedroom to the living room.

A witness went to the victim's residence to investigate the noise during this incident. Upon the witness entering the residence, the first suspect grabbed the witness and said, "You are going with us," Sullivan said. The suspect threatened to kill the fourth victim and she broke loose and ran. The suspects were seen running and a suspicious unknown make and model white car was seen leaving the area.

The suspects should be considered armed and dangerous and anyone with information is asked to call the Levy County Sheriff's Office for Investigator Mark Garcia at 352-486-5111.

The first suspect was described as a young black male, between 5'10" to 6"02", 150 pounds, short hair, wearing a black hood sweat jacket and black shorts, armed with a chrome colored semi-automatic pistol.

The second suspect is described as a young black male, between 5'07" to 5'09", heavyset, wearing black hood sweat jacket and black pants with a ball cap with New York Yankees logo, armed with a snub nose revolver.

The third suspect was described as a young black male, approximately 5'06", heavyset, with dreadlocks shoulder length, a "Coogie" black sweat jacket with a hood with red and blue emblem, wearing black pants. No weapon displayed.
