Police are investigating an aggravated burglary after two suspects broke into a woman's house with a gun.

According to Jonesboro police, two black men with masks knocked on the victim's door in the 300-block of East Allen Street early Saturday morning.

When the woman opened the door, the men pointed a pistol at her face and forced their way inside.

The suspects reportedly swatted a phone from her hand when she tried to call 911.

They woke him up, pointed the gun at his face, and demanded money from him.

The two men got away with about $500 cash before police arrived.

Anyone with information about this burglary should contact Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
