Lawrence police were busy overnight investigating two residential burglaries and robberies involving suspects armed with handguns.
At 9:10 p.m. Wednesday police were called to a residence in the 1100 block of Pennsylvania where two men took money and cell phones after forcing their way into the house. Two women and four children were held at gunpoint.
The suspects were described as black males, with one of them wearing a hood and the other wearing a pin-striped button shirt over his face.
At 2:20 a.m. today a woman in the 4700 block of Ranch Court called police after a man armed with a handgun entered her bedroom. The man took a cell phone and then left. The woman went to her garage, got into a car and called police on a second cell phone.
The suspect was a white man wearing a black stocking mask and gloves.
Police later recovered the cell phone.
Investigations are continuing in both incidents.
