Apparently a husband and wife were home when the three strangers knocked on their door. After the husband answered, the men forced their way inside. Two of them had guns. The men tore apart the apartment, demanding money, and searching for valuables.

Meanwhile, the woman was forced at gunpoint down into the parking lot where one of the crooks tried to steal a car belonging to the victims.

Police say after they received reports of the crime, they search the area, but could not find the suspects. No serious injuries were reported by the victims.
