The males were wearing black bandanas and black clothing and one of them was armed with a knife. Prior to police arrival the males fled the residence in a vehicle which was observed by a responding officer not far from the residence. The vehicle was stopped and 4 suspects were taken into custody. A resident of the home received a non-life threatening injury during the incident and was transported to QEII by EHS where he was treated and released.
