COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - An armed man followed a woman home before attacking and robbing her Saturday afternoon.

The suspect waited until the woman went into her apartment, then trailed in after her, police said. He first held the victim and her husband at gunpoint, then pistol-whipped the woman and stole her purse.

Police got the call just after 4:40 p.m. The apartment is located in the 1600 block of North Murray Boulevard.

Detectives say this was the second home invasion committed by the suspect Saturday. They believe he broke into a home earlier that day on Haven Circle, about 2.5 miles away from the apartment complex on Murray. No further information about that crime has been released at this time.
