GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police in Greensboro are investigating a break-in and robbery that left two people injured at a retirement community.

The incident happened Thursday afternoon at Well Spring Retirement Community. Two men broke into the home of a husband and wife in their 80's, according to Greensboro police.

The robbers tied up the victims and then helped themselves to money and electronics.

The husband and wife who live in the house were sent to the hospital with injuries. Police would not explain the extent of the injuries, but say the victims have since returned home.

Officers are investigating the crime as a home invasion and robbery.

Steve Fleming, President & CEO for Well Spring Retirement Community said the couple has live there for four years.

Fleming said they're working with the city to get a security gate installed. For now, at least two security guards will be on the grounds 24/7 and an off-duty Greensboro police officer will be stationed at the entrance, Fleming said.

According to Fleming, there has only been one other break-in at retirement community, which has been there for 23 years. That incident reportedly happened in 2015 and the unit was unoccupied.

Management sent a letter to people in the retirement community after the incident.
