Two armed suspects enter Colorado Springs apartment, assault resident

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Two people knocked on the door of a Colorado Springs apartment and forced their way in when the resident answered Friday afternoon, according to police.

It happened around 2:45 p.m. at the New Horizon apartments on El Camino Drive, which is in the area of Academy Boulevard and Union Boulevard. The victim told police he was in his apartment with his girlfriend when he heard a knock at the door. When he answered, two people forced their way into the apartment, assaulted him, menaced his girlfriend with a gun, and looked around the apartment, possibly in search of valuables.

The victim told police he did not know the suspects. Both suspects were wearing masks, so police were unable to get physical descriptions.

Police said the man had facial lacerations that were treated on the scene. The woman was not injured.
