SOUTH BEND — Police say three masked men robbed a grandfather and his grandson at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon inside their Linden Avenue home.
The grandfather told police he opened the door to his home in the 1300 block of West Linden about 1:15 p.m. after hearing dogs barking outside.
At the door, the grandfather said, he was confronted by three men, two wearing ski masks, the other wearing a gas mask and carrying a silver handgun.
The men forced the grandfather and his grandson to the floor, then searched the home for merchandise.
The grandfather told police three TVs, a cell phone and cash were stolen before the men ran out of the home. Police were called but were unable to find the assailants.
