Four people sought for early morning home invasion in Columbia

A Columbia man is robbed and pistol whipped inside his home during an early morning home invasion just east of Cosmo Park.

Police were called to the 1100 block of Madison Street just before 3 a.m.  When police arrived, the victim told them he’d heard a loud banging at his front door and when he looked outside, he saw one person holding a firearm and another attempting to kick in the door.

After the four suspects made entry, the victim was struck several times with a pistol.  He said they left after he gave them cash.

Three of the victims are described as black males, one standing 6’3” with glasses.  The fourth suspect was a black female.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Columbia PD or CrimeStoppers at 573-875-TIPS.
