Detroit — Police are investigating an early Monday morning home invasion on the city's west side where a 77-year-old woman was groped and held at gunpoint.

The home invasion occurred at about 12:15 a.m. on the 17000 block of Huntington, which is south of West McNichols and west of West Outer Drive.

A 52-year-old woman was taking out the trash when a man and a woman forced her to the ground, then forced her back inside the home, police said. 

The male suspect then forced a 77-year-old woman in the home upstairs, allegedly fondling her and stealing her purse before both suspects fled, authorities said. 

Police describe the male suspect as about 6 feet tall, in his 20s, wearing a dark coat and dark pants and carrying a handgun. Police say the female suspect is short with a small build, likely in her early 20s and wearing black pants and tan boots.

The suspects stole the keys to a white 2007 Kia Rondo and damaged a green 1995 Ford Escort at the home as they left. Police also say they stole money, medications, a TV and a laptop — in addition to the purse.
