GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A woman says her daughter was hit with a gun when their home was invaded and ransacked overnight.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, three men entered a home in the 2300 block of North Wilson in Granite City. The home’s owner, Tiffany Perry, told News 4 she was home with her three daughters when the men, whom she described as being large, kicked their way in through the back door.

“I was in the living room sleeping. We heard something hit, we actually thought a car ran into the house, it was that loud,” said Perry. “I jumped up, by the time I jumped up I had a gun in my face and two more men running in the back door and down the hallway where my children were.”

After entering, the suspects started kicking in doors and ransacking the home.

“My 21-year-old came out of her door and she punched one of the guys. He took the gun and cracked her over the head with it,” Perry said.

One of the suspects then kicked in her 20-year-old daughter’s door as she was calling the police.

According to Perry, the entire incident lasted between three and four minutes.

Perry told News 4 she believes the suspects may have been looking for something but had the wrong house.

Officers from Granite City said the home’s owner has family members who live in St. Louis and use the home on North Wilson as their mailing address. Police said the family member in St. Louis was the victim of a home invasion two weeks ago but it was not reported to police. The victim told police the individual is involved in the narcotics trade.  

Nothing was taken from the home.

One person who was in the Granite City home at the time of the incident was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Other details regarding the suspects have not been released.

Anyone with information regarding the home invasion is asked to contact the Granite City Police Department 618-877-61111.
