Green County officials are investigating whether or not an armed home invasion early Monday morning was random or if the victims knew the two men.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an armed home invasion in the N4400 block of Rechsteiner Road in the town of Sylvester just before 1 a.m., officials said.

Two men reportedly entered the home and threatened the occupants with handguns while demanding access to a safe, according to a release. The men took a substantial amount of cash, a handgun, collector coins and jewelry.

Officials said there were no signs of forced entry, and the occupants were no injured.

Both men are described as white with a slender build. One is described as 6 feet tall and the other one is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall.

Sheriff’s officials are asking anyone who saw an suspicious activity in the area to call 608-328-9400.
