    The 53-year-old homeowner had returned to the house shortly before the incident occurred and had been in her study reading when she got up to go to the bathroom. After entering the hallway from the study, she immediately noticed two large men in her kitchen and ran in fear to the upstairs bedroom where she activated a panic alarm, Fournier said.
    After a brief moment, she ran back downstairs and over to a next door neighbor, where they called 911.
    The victim only was able to provide a description of the men as wearing dark clothing with one possibly wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. It is unknown whether either was armed.
    No items were removed from the home and the victim was not injured.
