LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help in tracking down a group of men accused of holding at gunpoint a family of seven during a home-invasion robbery early Saturday morning.

Detectives said three men entered the home on Manuel Street East just after 6:15 a.m. And over the course of a few hours, they allegedly scoured the home while two adults and five children were held a gunpoint.

Two of the suspects are described as black men in their 20's, about 6-feet-tall, with one of them possibly having a tattoo around his left eye. A third suspect is a lighter-skinned man.

Anyone with information is asked to call crime stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
