A man stole a woman's car after holding her at gunpoint Wednesday night.

ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orlando police say two home invasions reported in the last 24 hours are not linked.

Police said there was an armed home invasion Wednesday night in the 5600 block of Kalmia Drive in which a tan Nissan Altima was stolen.

A woman, described by police as disabled, said she returned home around 10 p.m. and was walking to her front door while carrying groceries when a man approached her from behind and told her to get inside the house.  The man pointed his gun at her and demanded money, according to police, who said the man then pushed the woman to the ground.

The gunman then snatched the woman's house keys and car keys and drove off in her car, police said.

The woman suffered minor injuries and refused treatment.

No other information has been released.

Two men kicked in the door of an apartment at Oakwood Commons on Curry Ford Road around 9 a.m. Thursday and stole a cellphone, police said.

The duo then fled in a tan Nissan Altima.

No injuries were reported and police say they are investigating the incident.
