A 67-year-old Evanston man told police three masked men broke into his home in the 1200-block of Pitner Avenue early Sunday morning.

Evanston police say the victim told them one of the intruders, who was carrying a gun, ordered him to lie on the floor and to give them money.

Officers responding to the incident found the home’s backdoor forced open and the bedroom ransacked. Police say the victim wasn’t able to provide a description of the intruders.
