West Palm Beach Police are investigating a home invasion that took place in West Palm Beach Wednesday afternoon.

According to officials, the incident happened at 1:43 p.m. at the 700 block of Bradley Street.

Police responded to a home invasion. When police arrived, they learned that a man with a gun ran into a home.

That’s when a man demanded money and car keys, officials said.

The man escaped the home in the victim’s blue Mercedes Benz.

At 1:57 p.m., police say they believe the same suspect took a gray Mercedes Benz at the 400 block of Ardmore Road.

Shortly thereafter, police believe the man attempted to carjack a third car, this time without success.

Police said they then drove to the 1400 block of Alabama Avenue where he forced a FedEx driver to drive to Jupiter.

No injuries have been reported, police said.
