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.
