Dunedin, Florida -- Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating an early morning home invasion and robbery at a home in the 500 block of Chicago Avenue in Dunedin.
Police say during the incident a husband and wife were injured as the men forced their way into the home after she opened the door.
Sgt. David DiSano with PCSO says it appears one of the victims called 911 at about 5:30 this morning.
When deputies arrived, they found two people seriously injured. Both were taken to area hospitals.

A man in his 60's was stabbed in the neck, but his injuries are not life threatening. A woman, also in her 60's, was pistol whipped when she opened the door after the suspects knocked on her door this morning.
The couple are identified as Paula Babcock and her husband, Robert Babcock. Neither have an arrest history in Pinellas County.
Deputies are saying very little at this time as the investigation continues.
Sheriff Bob Gualtieri tells 10 News that neighbors do not have to be in fear of their safety. At this time, he says it appears the attack was targeted.
"We believe the people who committed it were looking for drugs/and or money. This is the second incident here this year, same type of situation and we believe they they [suspects] knew what they were looking for, again, drugs and money," said the Sheriff.
Detectives are talking to neighbors, looking for anyone who may know what happened.
Neighbors say they think there was a younger person living with the Babcock's.
Sgt. DiSano says detectives are working a few leads based on evidence found inside the home and witness statements.
