- A group of robbers invaded a home Monday night in the south suburbs.

The crime took place in the 100 block of Hemlock St. Witnesses then reported seeing the suspects run into a second Park Forest home after the burglary.

A barricade situation then ensued. A SWAT Team was eventually called out around 5 p.m. to set up a perimeter. They tried for several hours to make contact with someone inside using bullhorns.

When no one responded, at about 8:30 p.m. the SWAT Team entered the home but found no one inside. They did, however, find some electronics that had been taken in the burglary.

Police are asking the public to avoid the area of Hemlock St. from Western Avenue to Indianwood Blvd.

Authorities are still searching for the suspects.
