A Spokane woman said she and her roommate were “hogtied” during a home invasion Sunday night by four to five “black males.”

The caller said the men forced their way into her apartment with handguns, had fired a gun in the home and that there was blood on the floor, a news release from the Spokane Police Department said.

Spokane police responded to 911 E. Beacon Ave. around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. They found no other reports of gun fire and used a police dog to search for the men, but were unsuccessful.

The women could not provide much description, except to say the robbers were wearing bandanas over their faces, the release said. One woman was missing her car keys. Officers found blood on the floor, but no apparent victim. The woman who reported the incident did not know how the blood got on the floor.

Hospitals were contacted and asked to call police if a possible victim showed up.
