A Kilby Avenue family was uninjured when two subjects forced their way into the home and robbed the family at gunpoint.

Police are looking for the men who stole guns, computers and money from the family.

The 29-year-old male victim, his four daughters and his 80-year-old grandmother were home when a knock came at the door between 9:50 and 10:18 p.m. Thursday, city spokeswoman Debbie George said.

According to the police report, one of the girls answered the door and found two men there. They asked to speak to her father and then forced their way into the house when she went to get him.

The men then forced the victim to the floor at gunpoint while they stole two firearms, two laptop computers and some cash, George said. The victim’s grandmother was upstairs and was unaware of what was happening, she added.

The first suspect is described as a black male, about 5’11” and 240 pounds. He was wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey with the name Brown on the back, as well as blue jeans, brown boots and a brown hat, George said.

The second suspect had dark skin, wore a white T-shirt over his face and had dreadlocks down his back, George said. He wore jeans and a white jacket.
