Three suspects burst into a Roxbury apartment this morning in an apparent home invasion, terrorizing a couple and their 10-year-old daughter and making off with $1,800 in cash, police said.
Police spokesman Officer Eddy Chrispin said the suspects accosted a man walking into his apartment about 2:45 a.m. at 25 Dimock St., asked him, "Where is it at?" and held a gun to his head.
Chrispin said the suspects took the man to his bedroom where they got $1,800 in cash and two gold bracelets.
He said a 10-year old girl was awakened by the robbery, along with a pregnant woman inside the apartment. No one was hurt in the incident.
The suspects tied up the man with shoelaces and fled, police said in a statement.
The victims gave police a description of the three men saying they were dressed in black, with black hooded sweatshirts, pants, and shoes. Two people matching that description were stopped a short distance from the incident, but the victims could not identify them. No arrests have been made.
