Holly Springs police continue to search for two suspects who broke into a home on Crestmont Lane on Thursday to find a screaming woman hiding in the master bathroom.

The two men broke the glass out of the back door and entered the home on the 400 block of Crestmont Lane about 11:30 a.m., the Holly Springs Police Department said in a release Monday.

After some time rifling through drawers in the home’s kitchen, the suspects continued upstairs and entered the master bedroom, leaving out two knives on the kitchen floor. The knives and a doorknob were taken by police as evidence, a Holly Springs Police Department report said.

A 34-year-old female resident was in the bedroom and fled to the bathroom as one of the men was prying the bedroom door open, said Lt. Tanya Smith, public information officer for Holly Springs Police.

The suspects, who were both unknown by the resident, then made his way through the bathroom door and found her there.

She began to scream.

Neither man said anything to the woman, according to the report. Instead, the suspects fled the scene, without anything of value, the report said.

The woman could not identify the race or age of either man.

She described the first perpetrator as a slender man, standing between 5 feet 6 inches tall and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He wore all black with a hoodie and blue bandana veiling his face.

The other, she recalled as a man with a husky build between 6 feet 3 inches tall. He wore a tan short-sleeve T-shirt and may have been wearing a Bluetooth device, the release said.

Smith said Tuesday that the incident is still under investigation.
