Four men broke into a Whitpain home and "terrorized" the family inside early Monday afternoon, WPVI-TV reports.
The perpetrators wore ski masks and fled through the back door with money and jewelry when a neighbor knocked on the front door, WPVI reported.
The @MontcoAlerts account on Twitter, which usually relies upon emergency radio transmissions in its reports, described the subjects as possibly 3-4 black males and indicated the homeowner was held at gunpoint. @MontcoAlerts previously reported that the occupants of the home had been tied up during the incident.
The suspects remained at large Monday evening.
