STERLING – Police are looking for information in a home invasion that occurred shortly after midnight Sunday and involved five to seven people, two of whom were injured.

According to a news release, a group of people knocked on the door of a home in the 300 block of Seventh Avenue around 12:05 a.m., and when it was opened it, members of the group forced their way inside, and a fight ensued.

Two residents, a 26-year-old man and a juvenile, were taken to CGH Medical Center, treated and released, they said.
