CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi police arrested two suspects after a home invasion and are looking for two others.

Police say three armed men forced their way into a home on the 4500 block of Kirkwood Drive just before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

At least two people inside the home were hit in the face as the robbers demanded to know where a safe was.

When police arrived, the suspects were still at the scene. They arrested 38-year old Gerardo Cortez and 38-year old Deanna Lopez who were sitting in a car.

Cortez was charged with burglary of a habitation and drug possession. Lopez was charged with drug possession.

Police aren't sure if anything was taken from the home because the victims are not cooperating.
