OBION COUNTY, Tenn. — Five people are recovering after a home invasion early Monday morning in Union City. No injuries were reported, but that has done little to calm the nerves of those who live nearby. Police said two suspects forced their way into a house off of North 5th Street around 1 a.m. Monday. “A white male and a black male suspect broke in, kicked in the front door and stole a cell phone, a small amount of money and a radio scanner,” Union City Police Lt. Andy Gibson said. Police said after the home invasion the two suspects ran up from the house to 4th Street where they had a getaway car. One neighbor who lives nearby said she never expected anything like this to happen in her neighborhood. “I’m very shocked to hear that this has happened — it’s scary,” Tasandra Turner said. “This is like the senior citizen neighborhood and I’ve been loving it up till now. This is the second time I’ve heard about a home invasion, and it’s scary.” Police are still investigating.
