Detectives searching for three armed men involved in early morning home invasion

Three masked men forced entry into a North Seattle residence and ordered both victims to the floor.  This morning just shortly before 6:00 a.m., the two victims were inside their home in the 7500 block of 44 Ave NE when three masked suspects forced entry, striking one of the victims with the butt of a rifle.  Both victims were tied up. 

One suspect held both victims at gun point while the other two searched the home.  Several items were taken including the resident’s vehicle.  After the suspects left the home both victims were able to free themselves and run to a nearby residence to call 911.  The victims drove themselves to the hospital where officers met with them.

 Additional officers responded to the residence along with SPD Robbery detectives.     

This is an open and active investigation. Anyone with information about this incident and or the suspects is asked to call 9-1-1. Anonymous tips are welcome.
