— Two gunmen burst into an apartment, robbed three people and then fled in a stolen car Friday morning, according to Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael.

The gunmen confronted a man at the door to his apartment on Willow Creek Circle, near Guess and Horton roads, around 8:15 a.m., Michael said. The gunmen stole cash and electronic items from the three residents and then fled in a 2006 Suzuki Aerio belonging to a victim.

Officers found the stolen vehicle about 15 minutes later on Maryland Avenue, near Sunset Avenue, and recovered some stolen items, Michael said.

EMS workers treated one victim for injuries sustained during the robbery.

No one arrests have been made. Police were working on suspect descriptions.
