ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – We're following new information Thursday morning on a home invasion at 1012 South Cleveland where Albany police say teenagers forced a woman to lie down on the floor while they robbed her.

The victim, Palanthia Bell told police that at least two young men with their faces covered  knocked on her door around 10 PM Wednesday night. When she opened the door, they burst in and forced her to lie down. They had guns. Police say the men took money, then left. Bell wasn't hurt.

The robbers are described as 16 to 17 year old black men with medium builds, both wearing white T-shirts and basketball shorts.

People with helpful information should call 436-TIPS.
