NBCUniversal, Inc.

Miami Police are searching for two suspects who were involved in a failed home invasion robbery in Allapattah.

The incident happened around 4 p.m. on Dec. 8 at a home in the 2000 block of Northwest 18th Terrace when a victim who was outside tending to his dog was approached by a man armed with a folding knife.

The suspect demanded that the victim re-enter his home and find him money, and once inside, the suspect ransacked a bedroom searching for money but was unsuccessful, police said.

A second victim who lives in the home heard the dog barking and went to the front yard, where he saw a suspicious vehicle parked in front of the home. He tried to confront the driver, who pulled out what appeared to be a firearm before fleeing the scene, police said.
