Two unarmed black men barged into a home in the 1900 block of East Beech Street on Sunday night and ordered the woman resident to hand over her money, according to a Goldsboro police report.
As the suspects looked for property, the woman fled to a bedroom and her husband called 911.
The suspects grabbed two gold necklaces and $14 and fled, the report said. The necklaces were valued at $400. The suspects inflicted about $155 in damages to a door and a window to enter the home during the burglary.
One suspect was described as being 6-feet and 200 pounds, and he wore a white cloth wrapped around his head and a black hood. The other was described as being tall, and he wore a black hood. Both were 18 to 23 years old.
