Police in Gwinnett County are investigating a home invasion in the 2900 block of Sanibel Drive in unincorporated Stone Mountain that occurred early Tuesday morning.
Officers were initially sent to a report of a person stabbed Tuesday morning just before 4:30. When they arrived, they found the homeowner and three wounded male victims. The officers rendered aid to the victims.
When they searched the home, officers noticed that an outside basement door had been forced open and the rooms in the basement had been ransacked. A bloody knife was found in the basement along with a .40 caliber round, a cashbox and a plastic pill bottle.
The homeowner says he was asleep when he heard the victims banging on the basement door. When he opened the door, he said he saw that the victims were bloody and that one of them had flexicuffs around his neck and wrists.
Gwinnett County Crime Scene Investigators and detectives responded to process the scene and found drugs and paraphernalia there. The victims told investigators there were three suspects and that they were wearing masks.
