Deputies are searching for a home invasion suspect who choked a man in Sweet Home.

Deputies responded to the 2000 block of Birch Street at 7:07 a.m. Friday.

A 56-year-old man said he woke up to a man in a ski mask standing over him, shining a light in his eyes and demanding money.

Investigators said the suspect was possibly known by the victim. Deputies do not believe the suspect used a weapon.
