Police are investigating after two men wearing police insignias and bulletproof vests made their way into a Miramar home early Thursday, stealing weapons and cash after beating up the homeowner.

The home invasion happened around 1:15 a.m. at the Renaissance gated community at 2065 Southwest 117th Avenue, Miramar Police spokeswoman Tania Rues said.

Rues said a woman was involved in the home invasion.

"The female first came and knocked on the door to confirm the home address with the homeowner, she left shortly thereafter, the men then knocked on the door and they said they were police," she said.

Once inside, they attacked a man, who had to be taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Rues said. He hasn't been identified.

An undisclosed amount of cash, electronics and weapons were stolen from the home, Rues said.

Police haven't given a description of the suspects.

"If you're not expecting police to arrive at your home, please contact 911, if you feel anything suspicious in nature or want to confirm," Rues said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppres at 954-493-TIPS.
