Armed, masked men break into Grand Rapids home, threaten family

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A Grand Rapids home was broken into by three masked men armed with guns. A homeowner was assaulted before the men took off.

Police responded to the 800 block of Clancy NE where a family was assaulted shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday morning. 

They say three men wearing masks and toting guns broke into the home and gathered the occupants including a man, woman and several small children. 

The trio demanded cash. The male victim was struck on the back of the head with an unknown object when he refused. Police say he was not seriously injured.

The three men fled and escaped in a dark-colored vehicle parked behind the house.

The Grand Rapids Police Department is investigating this incident.
