Family looking for answers after home invasion

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is searching for two men who, according to police reports, had jackets with the word "police" on the back and broke into the home of three disabled men.

It happened late last week on the 8400 block of Berry Avenue, in Arlington.

Wayne Ray, one of the victims, says he's having trouble sleeping at night since the invasion.

"They went straight to my room, they knew exactly what to do," Ray said.

Ray says the two men broke down a door shouting "police" and "search warrant". Once inside, he said the robbers tied him, and another person up and ransacked the house.

According to a police report, the men got away with prescription medication, cell phones and cash.

"I thought I was going to die lying in my bed, I'll be honest with you," Ray said.

Another victim, Robby Wilkes said the robbery has forced him to change the way he lives.

"I reinforced my doors and got an alarm if somebody does come in," Wilkes said.

As for whoever did this, "I think they're pretty lowlifes," Ray said.

If you have any information that could help police, call JSO at 904-633-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS (8477).
