— Cary police said Tuesday that they are investigating a home invasion in which a woman reported that she, her son and grandchild were robbed at knifepoint.

Investigators said that, shortly before 2 p.m. Monday, a man knocked on the door to a home on Windy Peak Loop and forced his way inside when the woman answered.

No one was injured, and police said they've received no other reports of similar crimes.

The description of the man was vague. He was described as being 6 feet tall and in his 20s, and he was wearing camouflage shorts, a black shirt and a black hat.

The incident comes less than a month after two girls say they startled someone trying to break into their home on Castalia Drive – approximately 12 miles from the site of Monday's case – on the afternoon of Aug. 5.

In that case, no one entered the house and nothing was reported stolen.
