Police seek men involved in Stanton Heights home invasion
Pittsburgh police are searching for two or three men accused of kicking in the door to a home in Stanton Heights on Monday and accosting a couple inside.
At least two masked men and possibly a third who was not wearing a mask entered the residence on Brintell Street and forced the man and his wife to the floor, police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann said. The men, at least one of whom was armed with an automatic weapon, were searching for the couple's grandson who lives with them, he said.
The men removed shopping bags filled with items they took from the grandson's room and fled at 2:46 p.m. in a gray van with sliding side doors, police said. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
