Three armed intruders robbed five people late Wednesday at a home in Fredericksburg, police said.

The incident occurred about 11:15 p.m. in the 800 block of Littlepage Street, city police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said.

One female resident, two male residents and two male visitors were upstairs together when three masked men wearing dark clothing confronted them with handguns.

The intruders had entered through an unlocked door.

The robbers collected a considerable amount of property from the house and from the victims before leaving.

None of the victims were physically harmed; all are in their 20s, except for one man in his 40s.

Bledsoe said police were not ready to list what was taken, other than to say they were “items of value.”

She said the victims were unable to give good descriptions because the intruders had their features covered.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Ben Johnson at 540/654-5792.
