Family of five held at gunpoint in home invasion

A dangerous encounter for an entire family late Monday night when armed men stormed their way into the family's home.

An infant was inside the home on Spring Run Road, off Clays Mill Road, in Lexington when the home invasion happened.

Police say a man inside the home was using a computer when he heard a voice, turned around and saw a man with a gun.

Two other armed men made their way into the home, as well.

The residents tell police the robbers ordered them into a bathroom, where they stayed until the men left.

The robbers got away with medication and a woman's purse. Police think they got inside the home through an unlocked door.
