Authorities are investigating a home invasion that happened Tuesday afternoon in Cumming.

At least two of the three "probable suspects" have been identified, according to Sgt. Bryan Zimbardi of the Cumming Police Department.

The three suspects, described as black men, forcibly entered a residence in Adair Park located off Sawnee Drive just before 4 p.m. One of the suspects was armed with a semi-automatic pistol.

A man, who was at the home during the incident, told officers that he was struck by the pistol and held at gunpoint.

The suspects allegedly ransacked the home and took an undisclosed amount of cash, jewelry and electronic equipment. When officers arrived at the residence they learned the suspects had fled by vehicle.

Authorities continue to pursue several active leads, but have no other information available at this time on the victim or suspects.
