RANDOLPH, Mass. — Randolph police are searching for three men who tied up a woman and a teenager and ransacked a home in front of three small children.

It happened Thursday morning.

The family tells NBC Boston (http://bit.ly/2vpePRx ) that three men barged into the home and tied up the woman and a 17-year-old boy with string and duct tape. They told three other children to sit on the couch while they ransacked the home, taking items including cash, a phone and a gold chain off one of the children’s necks.

Police say one of the men was armed with a knife.

Minor injuries were reported.
