Police are investigating an unusual home invasion Wednesday night in southwest suburban Oak Forest.

Five males, two of whom were armed with handguns, walked up to a woman in front of her home in the 15000 block of South Jones Court at 8:48 a.m. and forced her inside, Oak Forest police Sgt. Tom Lynch said.

The suspects rummaged through her home for about 15 or 20 minutes then fled, Lynch said. No one was hurt, and it is not yet known if anything was taken.

Lynch could not immediately say if the woman was targeted for any reason, but said there have not been any similar recent incidents in Oak Forest.

“We’re still looking into all possibilities,” Lynch said.

Oak Forest police are investigating.
