Salt Lake police were looking for two home-invasion robbers Saturday night.
Just before 10 p.m. two men with bandanas covering their faces allegedly forced their way into a house near 1300 E. South Temple. One of the men was armed with a gun, said Salt Lake City Police Lt. Dave Cracroft.Comment on this story
The men then "demanded the (stuff)" from the occupants, he said. But the five people inside the house, who had only lived there a month, said they did not know what the men were talking about, nor had they ever seen them before.
The victims began digging money out of their wallets and offering their cell phones, Cracroft said.
One of the men reportedly found a U.S. Marine-issue knife inside the house and held it to the throat of one of the occupants, he said.
The men eventually left, taking money, cell phones and a DVD player. No one inside the house was injured.
