BELLEVUE - Brown County sheriff's officials say a woman and her husband were restrained during a home invasion in Bellevue.
Now, investigators are searching for three suspects.
Officials say the couple was injured during the incident Thursday night. They also say the home was apparently targeted.
Officials were called to the residence located in the 2400 block of Van Lake Court around 11:20.
Brown County sheriff's officials say the retired couple in their 60s is quite shaken up.
The husband and wife were restrained, but officials won't say how.
The woman was able to free herself and get help after the incident.
Both suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital. They've now been released.
Neighbors say the area is usually quiet, but that changed overnight.
"She was bleeding, cause she was holding the top of her head yet, besides. And blood was on her hands and neck and face," said Bob Butry, Bellevue.
Butry says his neighbor knocked frantically on his door late Thursday night and asked him to call 911.
"Was all full of blood and nervous, that's all. Just call 911 for me, that's all, and she said there's a person in the house with a gun," Butry explained.
Investigators say three suspects entered the woman and her husband's home between 9:30 and 10.
It all began when the couple heard a knock at the door. A man wanted to talk about a tree hanging over the lot line. He asked the homeowner take a look.
"He felt that was a little strange. He said I have to get my shoes on, and as he turned he was overpowered from behind to make entry and at that time, two other male parties followed the first one in," said Jeff Sanborn, Brown County Sheriff's Captain.
Sanborn says those two men were disguised. One of the suspects displayed a handgun.
"They detained the two victims, the husband and wife, at this residence and restrained them, moved them to a different room of the house, a struggle ensued," Sanborn said.
Officials say the suspects were in the house for an hour or more. It appears they were searching for money or valuables.
"It appears that they were targeted. There were some comments that were made in the house that leads us to believe that they knew what they were doing and whose house they were in," explained Sanborn.
Sanborn says it's unknown what the suspects took or what their motive was. They eventually left the residence.
"The three suspects stole the victims' vehicle from out of their garage and drove that away. That vehicle was found a short time later in the village of Allouez," Sanborn said.
Butry says he's never had to worry about anything in the neighborhood.
"This community is great, the whole area, haven't had any problems," Butry said.
Neighbor Nicole Fenlon, who just moved to the area a year ago, says the incident has her on edge.
"It's pretty scary. We thought this was a pretty safe neighborhood, and hope it still is, but it's pretty scary," Fenlon said.
Investigators say it's unknown if the suspects and the victims knew each other.
Officials describe the man who knocked on the door as Hispanic, 35 to 40 years old. He was wearing a tan jacket, blue jeans and black shoes.
The other suspects had their faces covered, but are possibly an Asian male wearing a long-sleeve, blue shirt, and possibly a white or Hispanic male wearing a long-sleeve shirt.
