Bothell police are looking for three male suspects in a home-invasion robbery that took place Thursday night in the 300 block of 228th St. S.E. Police say that they responded to a 911 call at 8:46 p.m.
"Three male suspects entered through the front door and brandished a gun," said Bothell Police Department spokesperson Capt. Denise Langford.
The three adults in the house were ordered to get on the floor and lay face down. The victims complied and then the suspects bound their hands behind their backs.
"They robbed them of several items but no one was injured," said Langford.
Police do not know how long the suspects were in the house but did say that electronics were among the numerous items that were stolen.
Two of the suspects were wearing masks and their identities, other than being male, were unknown. The third suspect was a black male with an "afro-style haircut."
Langfoord said that home-invasion robberies are rare for Bothell.
"We have had home-invasion robberies in the past but it has been a while," said Langford.
