Men pretending to be police officers tie up 7

Authorities say four men identifying themselves as police officers forced their way into a Chicago home and tied up seven people.

One person was transported to Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago for non life-threatening injuries.

Chicago police spokeswoman Antoinette Ursitti (ER'-seh-tee) says at least 1 of the four men was armed with a gun.

Ursitti says the men entered the home, restrained the seven people and struck at least one victim with a gun before ransacking the home. It happened around 1:20 p.m. Sunday.

The men fled the scene in a vehicle. Police did not know if anything was stolen from the house.
Be very wary out there!
