Police investigating armed robbery at home

An investigation is underway after police say a mother and her adult daughter were robbed at their home.

It happened just after 1 Thursday morning at a home on North Maple Street in Somerset.

Somerset Police say the victims told them two men came into the home, armed with a firearm and a knife. Police say they barged in after a third man came to the door, asking to use the phone because of car trouble.

Police say the men were targeting the victims' prescription medicine.

Police say the men ran off after the robbery, but police dogs lost the scent after a short distance.

No arrests have been made in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Somerset Police at 606-678-5176.
