Pensacola, Florida (PNJ) -- Two men have been arrested in connection to an armed home invasion early Sunday morning in Ensley, according to the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

Tyler Raley, 19, and Jordan Rowell, 19, are suspected of entering a home in the 1200 block of Tiffany Drive with several other individuals and stealing cash, electronics and two puppies, a Sheriff's Office arrest report said.

A resident of the home said that the doorbell rang around 4 a.m., and when he and a roommate answered it, several men wearing masks and holding guns forced their way inside, the arrest report said.

The men allegedly made their way through the home brandishing their weapons and demanding the residents belongings, the report said. They reportedly fled the scene in a red Dodge Avenger with $16, a cell phone, a PlayStation 3 console and two pitbull puppies.

No one in the home was hurt.

Sheriff's deputies stopped the Avenger near the intersection of Davis Highway and Brent Lane, the report said.

Inside the vehicle, deputies found Raley, Rowell, a juvenile suspect, shirts they allegedly used as masks and the puppies.

Both Raley and Rowell have been charged with home invasion and wearing masks in the commission of a crime.

They are being held in Escambia County Jail on $200,000 bond.
