ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Ascension Parish deputies are looking for the men responsible for several home invasions.

Sheriff Jeffrey Wiley says on January 5th around 8:00pm, a woman pulled into her garage when two black men went up to her car and opened the doors. It happened in a subdivision off Bluff Road and she was returning home from Baton Rouge, where she works.

Then on January 28th around 11:30pm, deputies say they responded to a home in a subdivision off Highway 621 near Highway 73 after receiving a report of a home invasion where a masked suspect broke into a home and robbed the homeowners at gunpoint.

They say in both cases, the victims had just returned home from Baton Rouge and may have been followed by the suspects.

On January 27th, a homeowner in a subdivision off Highway 74 reportedly saw a man at her back door during the day. Deputies say he pulled out a gun and demanded she let him in. She refused and dialed 911.

Deputies say several homes in the Dutchtown and Geismar area have been broken into in broad daylight. In many of those, the back doors were kicked in. Televisions, guns, jewelry, and computers were stolen.

Witnesses say the suspects in one of the crimes were riding in an older model, dark-colored Nissan or Jetta. In another, a black 2002 Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows was used.

One suspect is described as 5'7" tall with a medium build, but in most cases, the burglars wore masks. However, deputies say there was one crime when a suspect didn't where a mask and a witness was able to give a description for a composite drawing to be made.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office at 621-4636 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
