Two armed teens burst into a home in west Elk Grove Friday afternoon and stole cell phones and video games, authorities say.
Elk Grove Police Department spokesman Officer Chris Trim said around 3 p.m., two teens wearing bandannas or white cloth over their faces knocked on the door of a home on Lambeau Court, which is located near Franklin Boulevard and Whitelock Parkway.
One of the three teens who was home at the time didn't open the door, but somehow the suspects were still able to get into the home, Trim said, adding that the front door may have been unlocked or ajar.
Once inside, one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and "demanded the occupants get down on the floor," Trim said.
After searching the home and stealing personal items like phones and video games, the suspects fled on foot, Trim said. He said they ran north to Leemans Way, and then in an unknown direction.
Police searched the neighborhood, but were unable to find the suspects and by around 5 p.m. had stopped looking.
The suspects were described as black teens, one wearing a gray jacket and blue jeans, with the other wearing all dark clothing.
