Mount Olive, N.C. — Police were searching Thursday for a man wanted in connection with one of two home invasions on Monday.
A man forced his way into a home at 416 E. Franklin St. at about 3:30 a.m. and demanded money as he held a gun to the head of an 8-year-old, police said. At least one shot was fired into a bedroom wall before the man fled with a woman's purse, which contained cash and gift cards.
Around the same time, a man also went into a home at 1018 S. Johnson St., which is around the corner from the first home, and demanded money and drugs, police said. At least one shot was fired in the living room before he fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and drugs.
No one was wounded in either incident.
