Additional Details Released in Halifax Home Invasion

CORPUS CHRISTI - A manhunt is underway for two men and a woman involved in a home invasion. Police say the front door of the home on the 3100 block of Halifax Drive was wide open so the two guys walked right in.

A mother and daughter were in the process of moving, so naturally they kept the door open as they ferried stuff around.

Both saw a man carrying a crowbar as he walked in the door. He immediately demanded keys to their truck. The mother and daughter ran further inside the house, but were stopped by a second man who was carrying a crowbar and a knife.

The thieves took wallets and cell phones, then started trying to steal a television. At that point, one of the victims ran into the front yard to scream for help, but she fell, allowing a suspect to jump in top of her and cover her mouth.

She didn't give up, so the thief gave in, so she ran next door to call 911.

The second suspect stayed in the home with the other victim. Once he got the television and a cable box free, he ran outside towards a waiting Chevy Malibu.

A male neighbor confronted the guy immediately. That caused the suspect to put down the television so he could try to hit the witness with the crowbar. In all the confusion, the suspect grabbed the tv again and ran to hide in some bushes.

The getaway driver soon picked him up, plus the second suspect jumped on the trunk to catch a ride out of the neighborhood.

Here's the suspect description:
1) Male, medium brown skin, 5'7" tall, 120-140 lbs, tattoos covering both arms
2) Male, medium brown skin, 5'8" tall, 170-190 lbs. He had an orange or yellow towel to cover his face
3) Female, medium brown skin, driving a white Chevrolet Malibu with four doors.
