OSHKOSH – Police are looking for a suspect in a home invasion and armed robbery.

Around 11 p.m. Thursday, police say they were called to an apartment in the 1700 block of Robin Ave. A caller told police several people wearing masks were trying to break in to her apartment.

Officers got there just as the robbers broke down the door and went into the apartment. Police arrested two of the people inside the apartment. Two more ran out the apartment door; an officer caught one of them, but he broke free after struggling with the officer. After a short chase, a police dog caught the man and he was arrested.
