INTRUDERS STRUCK yesterday in two home invasions in well-to-do neighbourhoods, overpowering their victims with guns and leaving one woman bloody.

The attacks sent a wave of panic throughout the island last night as social media chat groups sent out crime alerts warning residents to be on the lookout for two well-dressed invaders.

Last night detectives in the north and south of the island were piecing together clues to determine whether the storming of a house in Christ Church was connected to one in St James.

In the Christ Church case two men, clean shaven and dressed in long-sleeveed shirts and reportedly posing as employees from a Government agency, approached a home in Frere Pilgrim around 9 a.m. Once someone answered the door, the men, armed with guns, pounced and repeatedly beat a woman with the weapons, all the while trying to gag her to stop her screams.
