A Lancaster man told sheriff’s deputies that he was robbed at gunpoint in his home on Sunday.

According to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the Drew Drive resident told deputies that three men kicked in the front door of his home while he was eating dinner with his girlfriend about 8:35 p.m. The couple’s two children and their friend were in a bedroom listening to music, the report said.

The three robbers held the people in the house at gunpoint, according to the report. One of the robbers kept asking him where all the money was, the report said.

When the man said he didn’t have any money, one of the robbers hit him on the head with the gun, the report said. One of the robbers also hit his girlfriend on the head with a gun, the man told deputies.

The robbers took the man to a bedroom where he kept his money, the report said. The other gunmen took the girlfriend and children to another bedroom and closed the door.

The robbers duct-taped the man’s hands together and left.

The robbers stole $700 and a red and white Samsung cell phone worth $100 from the man, the report said.

The man suffered cuts during the incident.

His girlfriend was checked out at the Springs Memorial Hospital emergency room.

According to the report, the robbers were dressed in black. Two of them were wearing black masks, and one was wearing a blue vest.

Maj. David Belk said investigators have no leads in the case.
