Police are searching for two suspects after a woman arrived home to find three burglars in her Clarksville residence.

The incident occurred around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday at a home on McClardy Drive north of the city.

The 18-year-old victim told police she noticed a bluish green car by her mailbox as she was arriving home. She also noticed man standing near the vehicle smoking a cigarette.

As she pulled into her driveway, she could see lights on and the back and garage doors were open along with two men inside of the house.

She went inside the house when one of the suspects pushed her down with a handgun, at which time the suspects fled.

The woman called police and provided a suspect and vehicle description.

An officer spotted a vehicle matching the description and attempted to pull over the suspected driver.

The driver abruptly stopped in the middle of the road and then got out of the car and fled into the woods.

The passenger attempted to exit the vehicle but was unsuccessful because the door would not open from the inside.

The officer detained a 17-year-old who was positively identified as one of the suspects involved in the robbery.

The suspect was taken into custody as a juvenile and was charged with aggravated burglary.

Police were able to identify the two other suspects as 23-year-old Christopher and 21-year-old James Denapoli.

A detective secured aggravated burglary and assault warrants for the Denapoli brothers.

The brothers last known address was listed as 601 Mann Circle.

James recently presented a petition attempting to revoke a warrant on file for a previous incident.

Police believe one of the suspects may have been acquainted with the victim when they were in high school.

Police were unable to recover jewelry and other items stolen during the robbery.

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is urged to call Clarksville Police.
