Two people were in custody and at least one more person was on the run after Coral Gables police say they committed two home invasions at knifepoint Monday afternoon.
By 6 p.m., several streets around Venetia Avenue and Capri Street were closed as detectives combed the area for the third suspect.
Coral Gables Sgt. Tomas Salcedo said the incident began when a trio in a stolen car forced a homeowner — who had called police — into his home with a machete.
When police arrived, the trio took off and at least one of them ended up forcing another homeowner into their home at knifepoint.
