None of the occupants were injured in the home invasion which occurred about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday. The victims were 7-45 years old.

In a report, police said three young men kicked in the rear door to enter the home. Once inside, they took an X-Box 360, 20 games and three cell phones.

Two suspects are black and a third is Hispanic. One is 25-26 years old and 6 feet, 1 inches tall with a muscular build and the second is 19-20 years old, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and skinny. The Hispanic male is 24-27 years old, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall with a thin build. No clothing description was given.
