FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — Five or six home invaders forced a local homeowner to open a safe at gunpoint Sunday night, the police said.

At about 8:45 p.m., the suspects, described as Hispanic or black males, entered the Beacon Street home, then “zip tied” a woman and three children, Framingham Police Lt. Ron Brandolini said. After the woman and children had been tied up, the suspects took money from the safe and fled, Brandolini said.

No one was physically injured during the alleged home invasion and armed robbery, the police lieutenant said.

Police are investigating the incident.
