Two men wanted for Biloxi home invasion


An elderly Biloxi man was beaten and robbed Thursday evening in a home invasion.

Biloxi police are searching for two men who forced their way into the home of an elderly couple in the Beau Chen neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. Police say the husband, in his 70s, was left with a black eye and cut on his nose. His wife was not injured, according to police.

A source told WLOX News the suspects knocked on the door of the home claiming they were having car trouble, then forced their way in and demanded money. Police say the couple gave the men their cash. The couple then went outside with a phone to call police, unsure if the robbers had really left the house. 

Police don't know if the men got away in a vehicle or on foot. Police searched the area and are working on leads to find the suspects, who are only described as two black men.

Anyone with information that might help in the investigation should call Biloxi Police at (228) 392-0641.
