ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Two teens are facing charges of home invasion and auto theft in relation to a Tuesday morning home invasion in the 3700 block of Blackstone Avenue.

Police responded to the home around 7:30 a.m. for a welfare check on an 81-year-old man. There, they learned a home invasion occurred that morning in which the suspects took the man's silver PT Cruiser.

While officers were on the scene, additional officers found the vehicle in the 1800 block of Counsil Crest Drive. It was occupied by 18-year-old Raven C. Richardson of Rockford and 17-year-old Mokeece C. Townsend of Dolton, Illinois. Both were taken into custody and charged for the Blackstone Avenue incident.
