Armed home invasion in north Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) -- Police are looking for two men who forced their way into a north Seattle home late Tuesday night, fought with an 84-year-old homeowner and fled with a woman's purse.

Police say the intruders forced their way through a back door, awoke the 84-year-old, pointed a gun at him and demanded money. He was knocked down and kicked. He was treated at the scene by medics.

Police searched the area with a dog and found some items from the woman's purse.
