North Side woman says men ordered her to make them food while robbing home



PITTSBURGH - Investigators said they're searching for three men who broke into a North Side woman's home and held her at gunpoint while they ransacked her house.

Police said the incident happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday on Bonvue Street.

According to police, the men gained access to the victim's home by breaking through a window. Once inside, one of the men held the woman at gunpoint while the others searched the home and stole a small safe.

The victim told Channel 11's Dave Bondy that at one point during the robbery, the men ordered her to make them a sandwich.

Investigators did not say what was inside of the safe.

Police said the men were last seen running down Bonvue Street toward Perrysville Avenue.

The victim was not hurt.

Neighbors said they're staying vigilant in light of the recent crime. Todd Moye said he uses his five dogs as security.

"This is my security for the house right here. We have no issues here," Moye said. "I'm big on security, making sure the doors are locked. Whatever needs to be lit is lit. My Akita – that is the big security for me."

The victim told police that she didn't get a good look at the robbers, but she did say they appeared to be in their late teens.

The victim, who is a mother of four, told Bondy she now plans on moving out of Pittsburgh.
