November 22, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Howard County police were searching yesterday for three armed men who forced their way into a Columbia home Saturday night and robbed two men and two women.

Police said one of the victims answered the door at a house in the 8700 block of Airybrink Lane about 8: 30 p.m., and the men, each with a handgun and wearing dark clothes and a ski mask, rushed in.

Officer Keith Berry said that after the robbers forced the occupants to lie on the floor, they searched the house, took an unknown sum of cash and jewelry, and fled.

None of the occupants, including an 18-month-old toddler, was injured, he said.
