Another man managed to get away and call for help, police said.

That’s when the group of suspects took off in a Ford F-150 truck that belonged to one of the victims.

Dunlevy said it happened inside a home along South Seventh Street.

“The home was being renovated. The front door was wide open and the individuals were working on the home,” Dunlevy said.

Police put out a notice to other departments and soon after, that truck was found. But the suspects were able to get away.
