Home invasion under investigation in Evans County

CLAXTON, GA (WTOC) -

The Evans County Sheriff's Office is investigating a home invasion that occurred overnight. 

It happened shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday at a home on Bay Branch Church Road, near U.S. Hwy 301 just south of Claxton. Officials say one person who lives at the home was assaulted by three male suspects. No word on injuries.

They say the resident was able to contact police before the suspects gained entry to the home. 

When deputies arrived, the three suspects took off running into some woods. They say one of the suspects was caught and is in custody and they are actively searching for the two others involved.

Officials say they do not believe this was a random act. No other details have been released at this time. 

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Evans County Sheriff's Office. 

WTOC's Dal Cannady is following this developing story and will have more information to come.
