A Maple Grove man that said armed robbers invaded his home early Friday morning told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that he was held at gunpoint as armed robbers ravaged his home.

Caleb Thompson heard a knock at his door overnight and before he knew it, he was staring down the barrel of a gun.

"It was very scary, cause it was a big revolver," Thompson told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. "I did hear the hammer click back when he pulled it out."

Thompson said the suspect then shoved his way into the home on 71st Pl. around 3 a.m.

"In the back of my mind, I am like, is he going to shoot me?" Thompson said.
Thompson thinks three or four men then stormed his home, stealing his wallet, CD player, DVD player, and Playstation. The gunman then forced Thompson into the basement bathroom and the suspects left with the loot.

Police think that part of the reason that the robbers chose the location is because of easy access to the freeway. Thompson said the suspects used his credit cards at a White Castle about 30 minutes after attack.

Some neighbors had a tough time seeing police search their neighborhood with K-9s.

"Not in this neighborhood, it's just too close," said one neighbor.

Police are searching for five black males in their late teens or early 20s.

Yowza- there's a real good reason to answer the door "heavy". (our family's term for armed) Not to mention an excellent reason to not to answer the door at all in the middle of the night!

Not only are they criminals, but they're tasteless criminals.
