NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- One man sexually assaulted a woman while another tried to steal items from a home after breaking in with guns on Thursday, North Augusta Department of Public Safety said in a report.

NADPS is still looking for the suspects in the armed home invasion that happened just before 10 a.m. off of Atomic Road, a report said.

A report said one suspect stayed with the male victim in the home as he filled a suitcase with laptops, tablets, an XBOX and games. The other armed suspect sexually assaulted the woman who was in the home, according to a report.

One suspect forced the man to call someone and ask for money after threatening to hurt the victims if they didn't follow through, a report said. The person the victim called flagged down an officer. Once an officer arrived to the scene, the suspects ran away, a report said.

The suitcase filled with the homeowners' items was left at the scene, a report said. The victims' injuries are non life-threatening.

One suspect is described as a 6'02' black man in his late 20s wearing a black shirt, camouflage pants and black and red Jordan shoes, a report said. The suspect had a chipped front tooth, a tattoo on his left forearm, a goatee and was carrying a black semi-automatic handgun.

The other suspect was described to deputies as a 6'01' black male in his early 20s wearing a white shirt tied around his head and carrying a black shotgun. The first suspect also called the second suspect "Fab" at some point, a report said.

Officers created a perimeter on Atomic Road stretching from Carolina Springs Road to Seymour Drive. Bloodhounds were used to try and find the suspects, but investigators still don't know where they are.
