Ridge Avenue man says he, another man were held up at home

A Ridge Avenue resident said he answered his front door late Monday afternoon to find three men there, one of whom pulled a gun on him.

A man with a silver handgun ordered the two men inside the house to lie down and not to move, or they would be shot, according to a police report. The intruders went through the men’s pants pockets and wallets, took money and left.

A neighbor told police that when she arrived home that afternoon, she had noticed two men sitting in a gold Pontiac Grand Am in the driveway of the home.

Descriptions of the home invaders were sketchy. Two of the men are about 5-foot-7 and weigh about 170 pounds, according to the report. The third man is about 6-foot-2 and is very muscular, the report stated. He was wearing a blue bandanna.
