NAPLES, Fla. - Naples police are looking for two suspects in connection with a armed home invasion robbery that happened Monday night.

Officers were dispatched just before 10 p.m. to an armed robbery in progress in the 900 block of 17th Avenue South.

Police say two masked men armed with silver semi-automatic weapons held a family of five at gunpoint.   The gunmen first took the cell phones of the two adults and took the victims to the master bedroom where they were all bound with duct taped.  Four were placed face down while the fifth was taped to a chair facing away from the others.

The robbers then asked where the money and jewelry was.  One victim handed over her wedding ring.  One suspect stayed with the family while the other rummaged through the house for cash and jewelry.

About 40 minutes into the hold up the suspects asked for the car keys and fled in a black BMW.  The car was later recovered behind a restaurant.
