San Francisco police are looking for five men who forced their way into a home in the Richmond District early this morning and robbed the sleeping residents at gunpoint.

According to SFPD, the armed men entered the home on the 500 block of 40th Avenue about 2:50 a.m. where between five and 10 people were asleep.

The robbers -- who were only described as black men in their 20s -- held the victims at gunpoint while pilfering electronic devices, cash, wallets, and luggage.

Nobody was hurt, but the residents were certainly shaken up, as KTVU reports.

"Five guys came in with guns and immediately began knocking down doors," a resident told KTVU. "They started hitting us and dragged us all out into the living room."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
