Report of South Bend home invasion turns out to be false


Sample St. was closed down for more than an hour Monday evening after reports of a home invasion in South Bend.

South Bend Police responded to the call of a home invasion and "armed parties" at a home near W. Sample St and S. Brookfield St. shortly after 4:00pm.  SWAT was called to the scene as a precaution, but after searching the area police say they do not believe a home invasion took place.  Police say no home invaders or weapons were found inside the home.

Two people living in the home were taken for medical evaluation according to police, but no one was arrested.
