Woman’s home invaded

Elena Stoyanova, 26, said she answered a knock at her door on Vanstory Street in Greensboro on Dec. 22 when she was confronted by a black man wearing a dark hoodie and wielding a handgun. The intruder reportedly told Stoyanova to lie down on the floor, then opened the back door and allowed an accomplice to enter. She said the two intruders ransacked the house, taking two laptop computers and a digital camera. A police dog was brought out to pick up the intruders’ scent, but lost track at Four Seasons Boulevard. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 336.373.1000.
