NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

Charleston County deputies say they are searching for two suspects who invaded two North Charleston homes while in the search for drugs and money early Monday morning.

Deputies say the call came in to 911 around 3 a.m. from a home on Ward Avenue, near Stall Road.

According to an incident report, a couple had just returned home from work when two armed suspects appeared from the left side of the house and demanded money.

Deputies say the male victim was pushed to the ground and held at gunpoint by one of the suspects while the victim's wife ran inside and locked the door. One of the suspects then kicked in the door of the home and chased after the female victim. The suspect then pointed a gun at the victim's child and requested money and dope.

Investigators say the female victim was then dragged out of the home and taken to a family member's house on Midland Park Road. At that time, the male victim ran to a car and began honking the horn.

Deputies say the suspect took an Apple laptop, two watches and a wallet from the home on Midland Park. 

Both suspects ran away after the male victim started honking the car horn. 

The incident is under investigation. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
