Maine State Police are investigating a home invasion at a residence in Minot in which three men wearing masks allegedly broke in and robbed its occupants late Saturday night.

Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said that someone called 911 around 11 p.m. to report that a person was being held hostage inside the home at 340 Garfield Road. The caller reported that there were a number of robbers inside the home who were armed with guns.

State troopers responded and located three victims who had fled the home, McCausland said, citing a state police report. The home’s owner, Ross Tardif, was not at home during the robbery.

Cyril Anduze of Auburn and Jamel Horrobin and Rullah James, both of New York City, suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene, McCausland said.

He said police subsequently recovered drugs, money and firearms from the home. The incident remains under investigation by state police, Auburn police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
