A home invasion is an illegal and usually forceful entry to an occupied, private dwelling (home, apartment, hotel room) with intent to commit a violent crime against occupants, such as robbery, assault, rape, murder or kidnapping.
Home invasions usually occur at night or weekends when the home is most likely to be occupied. The home invaded may pick their target by watching the home owner and their daily pattern of movement in and out of the home.
