UWCHLAN >> Two masked armed robbers allegedly broke into a home on Byers Road with residents present shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday and stole money, according to police.
Police said the victims reported they were robbed by two black men, each about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build. They were armed with handguns, according to police.
The suspects reportedly moved the entire family to one room and physically restrained them, police said.
One of the alleged robbers reportedly struck a family member on the head with a handgun when he did not immediately listen to their commands, according to police.
