ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Police are searching an area south of downtown for two suspects in a Jennings home invasion.
Police responded to the 1800 block of Oxford Lane where a victim says the two men broke through the door and attacked the homeowner.
The home invasion led to a 90 mph police chase through downtown with the victims in a grey Grand Prix.
The two men, believe to be armed, then exited the vehicle near 7th and Chouteau and fled on foot.
A police helicopter and search dogs were in the area trying to locate the men but police suspended the search a short time later.
The suspects are described as black males in their 20s. One is believed to be 5’8 tall, 200 pounds, and wearing an orange and blue hat, white shirt, and jeans. Police describe the other suspect as 5’8, 150 pounds, and last seen shirtless with black pants.
The two suspects were last seen on the 1000 block of LaSalle Park Court. Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crimstoppers at (866) 371-8477.
