Robbers forced a woman to the floor in her home while they took her grandson's belongings in a Saturday home invasion, Columbus police said.
The suspects gained entry to the Brooks Road home around 9:30 a.m., said Sgt. Frank Massa. The first to approach the house was a man the 58-year-old woman knows as "Mike."
"She let him in to use the phone," Massa said. "She'd seen him with her grandson before."
Her grandson is currently in jail in another county, the sergeant added.

After a few minutes, two other men entered the home and started going through her grandson's items. The armed suspects forced the woman to the floor, though no shots were fired.
"They told her not to leave or move or nothing," Massa said.
The three men took a 32-inch television and other items of the woman's grandson and left in a newer model maroon or burgundy vehicle.
One of the suspects is described as a light-skinned 25-year-old slender black man, standing 5-foot-11 and wearing a doo-rag and tan jacket.
The second suspect is described as a dark-skinned 25-year-old black man, standing 5-foot-11 and wearing a black doo-rag with a hood over his head.
The third suspect is described as a 20- to 25-year-old black man, standing 5-foot-5 and wearing a black shirt over his head with gloves on his hands, said Sgt. Matt Blackstock.
