MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Two people have been arrested after a home invasion in Middletown.

Police responded to the 2100 block of Arlington Ave just before 10 p.m. Sunday night. Officers responded to find that the 75 year old resident, who is legally blind, was at her residence when someone knocked on her door. When she opened the door, a male and female forced their way into the home and robbed her. The victim's son was asleep at the time and after waking up, was able to chase the suspects out of the house. The suspects got away with a cell phone, credit cards and cash.

Upon investigating the incident, officers found the suspects to be Mark Dennis, 34, of Middletown and Cassandra Miller, 25, of Franklin. Both suspects were found shortly after and arrested.

All of the evidence was recovered and both were arrested and placed in the Middletown Jail. Both were charged with Aggravated Burglary and Robbery and will be in Middletown Municipal Court on Monday.
