AKRON: Police are investigating a home invasion in the 400 block of Perkins Street.

A woman at the house told police a man with a gun broke into the apartment about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. The gunman ordered her to lie on the floor.

An upstairs tenant heard the commotion and rushed to the woman's aid, causing the gunman to cut his robbery short, police said.

As he fled, the intruder did manage to steal a purse.

Anyone with information is asked to call Akron police at 330-375-2181.
