COLUMBUS -- Police are investigating a home invasion and robbery at 5706 Forest Elm Lane in Northeast Columbus about 8 a.m. Wednesday.
The resident says three men wearing dark hooded sweatshirts and white surgical masks as well as carrying guns.
They ordered one woman to the floor holding a gun to her while another went upstairs where the woman's mother and 1-year-old child were in bed.
The robbers flicked on the light, put the gun in one of the victim's faces and demanded money.
They got $50.00 and a cell phone.
The three suspects got scared off when a friend showed up at the home.
They took off on foot out the back door, jumped a fence, and dropped their hats and sneakers on the back patio.
Police will be testing those items for any DNA.
The family says they have lived there for three years.
A neighbor that ABC 6/FOX 28 talked to said they didn't hear anything but heard yelling.
