Two home invasions in Citrus County have prompted the sheriff to issue a safety warning while they look for the suspects who did them.
The first happened just after midnight Thursday on South Purslane Drive in Homosassa.
A woman was sitting on her lanai when a man and a woman forced their way in at gun point, led the woman inside and ransacked her bedroom.
The victim had to be taken to the hospital for her injuries.
The second happened around 9 p.m. Thursday on Pine Drive in Sugarmill Woods.
The man inside the home heard a knock, opened the door to a man who pointed a gun at him and forced his way in.
The thieves took cash and jewelry.
Bobbi Gibson's eye may take a few weeks to heal. It is an ugly reminder of the terrifying moments she suffered through Wednesday night.
"You just think about making it through without getting killed," she said.
She was sitting outside when of a sudden a guy with a bandana covering his face, stuck a gun in hers.
"Just was quiet ,I was scared," she said.
He was joined the woman seen in a composite picture. Together they forced Gibson inside and ransacked the house looking for valuables.
As if that wasn't bad enough, they punched her in the face before leaving. The couple didn't stop at one, deputies believe the next night they attacked a second victim.
He heard a knock at the door and instead of it being his buddy, it was a guy with a gun.
"He grabbed my shirt, forced me to the ground. He put the gun to the back of my head, [and said] give me the wallet or I'll shoot you in the back of the head," Paul said.
He wasn't hurt, but the thieves got away with jewelry and cash.
"It was very scary, I hope I never have to go though that again," he said.
Detectives issued the following descriptions of the suspects:
