No suspects have been arrested in connection with a Dec. 3 home invasion in east Forsyth.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the incident, which occurred at a home on Tamiami Trail off of Pilgrim Mill Road.

The agency is “continuing to narrow down some different aspects of the investigation,” spokeswoman Karleen Chalker said Friday.

The incident report states that a young woman claiming to be selling children's Bibles visited the home at about 3:40 p.m. that day. When the resident opened the door, one or more black male suspects wearing dark hoodies and masks reportedly ran inside attempting an armed robbery.

The suspects fled before deputies arrived within minutes of the 911 call.

The sheriff’s office has released a sketch of the female suspect and a photo of a Toyota Camry as a vehicle of interest.

Chalker said office believes the Camry is a white or gold 2010 model with “low-profile tires and wheels.”

The photo released is of the actual vehicle in question.

The car “may have been driven by a young, white female with light colored hair,” which could be the same woman suspect authorities are seeking, Chalker said.

She has been described as an "attractive white female with shoulder-length blond hair and crystal blue eyes." She is about 5 feet, two inches tall with a "young person build."

The sheriff’s office believes the home was targeted and that the incident was isolated.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the sheriff's office at (678) 513-5920 during normal business hours or (770) 781-3087 after hours.
