PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Residents in a Port Charlotte home say three armed men robbed them at gunpoint and stole wallets and cellphones from them early Monday morning.

According to a Charlotte County Sheriff's Office report, the victims say it happened around 4:30 a.m. at a home in the 21200 block of Burkhart Drive.

They say the suspects wore ski masks and ordered them to get on the ground, and struck one victim on the head with a handgun.

The suspects fled the home with a gold Figaro bracelet, a leather wallet, a Nissan Altima key, and two cellphones.
