BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police are on the hunt for three masked men who they say forced their way into a home and took off with five guns and jewelry yesterday.

Police say a homeowner on North Ridgefield Avenue opened his front door and found a masked gunman pointing a shotgun at him.

The homeowner's brother says the three suspects grabbed a Nintendo Wii system and then forced him upstairs to open a safe in the bedroom.

He also says the suspects threatened to hurt his brother's daughter if he didn't hand over five guns in the safe.

Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call police at 203-576-7671.
