Metro police are searching for two armed suspects in a home invasion at an apartment complex overnight in South Nashville. According to Metro police, the two victims, a 19-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man, were inside their apartment at a complex on 309 Redd Court, off of Nolensville Road near McNally Drive, when someone knocked on the unlocked door shortly before 1:30 a.m. Monday. Two armed suspects entered and ordered the couple into a closet. The suspects fled with a TV, a laptop, speakers, cash and jewelry. No one was injured in the incident.
