Schaumburg police conducted a two-hour manhunt this morning searching for a pair of suspects wanted in connection with a reported home invasion on the village's west side.
Police Sgt. John Nebl said the suspects reportedly forced their way through the front door of a home in the 300 block of Pembroke Lane at about 8:40 a.m. while a resident was inside the home. The men stole some items then fled the residence, he added.

Early reports indicate the resident was not injured during the break-in, Nebl said. It is not clear whether the suspects knew that a person was inside the home at the time of the break-in, he said.
Schaumburg police officers, along with a K-9 unit from the Cook County Sheriff's Office and a Chicago Police helicopter spent about two hours searching the area around the home -- located near Barrington Road and Weathersfield Way -- but did not locate the suspects.
The suspects were described as black males in their 20s wearing black hooded sweatshirts.
"The likelihood that they're still in the area seems pretty minimal," Nebl said.
Police did not request that any area schools go on lockdown during the search, he added.
Investigators may work with the home's resident today to come up with composite sketches of the suspects, which would later be made public.
