NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Police say two masked men carrying handguns entered a Newport News home early Wednesday morning, robbing victims of cell phones and cash.
According to Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department, police were dispatched to a home in the no-hundred block of Sunset Road just after 1 a.m. Jan. 23. Three victims who lived at the home said they heard a knock, unlocked their door and two armed black men entered their home wearing masks and dark clothing.
One of the suspects forced one 20-year-old victim upstairs at gunpoint, where the suspect gave him the cash he had in his room. The other suspect demanded a cell phone and wallet from another 20-year-old victim. Nothing was taken from the 21-year-old third roommate.
Eley said two more victims were at the home during the incident, but left before police arrived to the scene.
No one was injured.
