Prospect Park police responded on Monday, May 30, at 10:23 p.m., to a 911 call regarding a subject with a gun inside a residence in the 200 block of Lafayette Avenue. According to the homeowners, three armed black males entered the front door, which was unlocked, the release said.

While holding one of the homeowners at gunpoint on the kitchen floor, the men searched the home for valuables. One of the residents was able to call 911 to report the robbery and assault. At that time, the three men abruptly fled the house through the rear door, the release said.
