Police are looking for information on three suspects who ransacked a Friendswood home while three teens were home alone. Police say the family's three sons were uninjured following a break in at their home by a band of robbers. The robbery occurred in the 500 block of Heather Lane at about 8pm Wednesday.

The three teens told police they were at home when three males entered into their bedrooms. Police say all of the suspects were described as Hispanic and were wearing all black clothing and gloves. At least one of the men had a handgun.

The suspects reportedly ordered the teens to hide in a bedroom as the men ransacked the home. The victims believed that the men may have been in the house for up to 30 minutes.

The teens stayed hidden until they believed the suspects had left. The teens then escaped from house and went to a neighbor's house to call police. The police were contacted at approximately 8:35pm.

Anyone with information regarding this crime should contact Friendswood Police Department at 281-996-3300.
