Thank GOD no one was harmed.Police say five armed men who tied up a family for hours during a home invasion in a wealthy North Branford neighborhood threatened to kidnap a 3-year-old boy in the house if they didn't get money.
The robbers fled without the boy and no one was injured.
Police say the masked intruders broke into the home in the Northford section of town at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday and fled hours later in the family's pickup truck, which was found abandoned nearby. Authorities haven't located the suspects.
Police said the suspects made off with a shotgun, liquor and other items after unsuccessfully trying to get the boy's grandfather to open a safe.
