HOBART | Two men and a woman broke into a home in the 6200 block of California Street, forced the resident to the floor then stole a gun and cash, police said.

The resident was not injured in the home invasion incident reported to police at 7:46 p.m. Sunday, police Sgt. Jeremy Ogden said.

Police were called by a neighbor who had seen three individuals running down the street, including a man carrying a gun, Ogden said.

The resident told police three individuals had entered his back door, forced him to the ground then demanded money.

The three ransacked his home then left taking a small amount of cash and the gun, Ogden said.

The three suspects were seen getting into a newer model gray Chevrolet.
