A man came home from work to walk his dog and wound up with a gun pointed in his face.
It happened around 2 p.m. Thursday at a home on Angelstone Point near West Woodmen Road on the northwest side of Colorado Springs.
The homeowner escaped unharmed but as you can imagine, is a bit shaken up. This latest crime has neighbors living in and around the Cedar Canyon subdivision on high alert following this incident.
"This was so out of the blue that it was just surprising," neighbor Hannah Neuman said. "Nothing really happens up here. It's definitely a scary thought to think that somebody violated this type of community."
As the homeowner returned to his house, police say the man left the garage door open. That's when three men stormed into his house. We're told at least one of the robbers had a gun.
"We consider this a very serious crime as they held a gun to him," CSPD Spokesperson Barbara Miller said. "One of the causes for concern is that two weapons were taken from the home and of course they already had one weapon and that's very dangerous."
Police say neighbors told them they heard their door bells ring around the time the home invasion took place, but nobody saw who was at the front door.
"I heard my doorbell ring five of six times," Neuman said. "Being home alone, I didn't get up to answer it."
Police always advise residents not to answer their front door if they do not know the person outside.
All police have to go on is a very vague description of the home invasion suspects. Thy are all described as being black males in their early to mid-20's. They may have had a getaway car but at this time, police do not have any type of vehicle description.
Anyone with information about this armed home invasion is asked to call police at 444-7000.
