Three unidentified suspects robbed a family at gunpoint before dawn Friday during a home invasion in the 1700 block of North Tennessee Boulevard in Murfreesboro.

No one was seriously injured in the incident, which occurred at about 1:30 a.m. in the Cedar Park Manufactured Home Community.

The suspects barged into the residence, pointed a semi-automatic weapon at a father, his son and another man, and demanded all of their money. In total, the suspects stole more than $300 in cash, as well as some prescription medications, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.

A woman who was hiding inside a bedroom was able to call 9-1-1 as the suspects were fleeing the scene on foot.

Police searched the area and a K-9 Unit was also called to the scene, but the suspects were not immediately apprehended.

The suspects are described as two black males and one white male. Additional information regarding their appearance was not included in the report.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867.
