Three masked men force their way into O’Connell Street home

Three men wearing black hoods and masks, one armed with a semi-automatic handgun, forced their way into an O’Connell Street home Friday afternoon, pushing the male resident to the floor and beating him in his head before making off with his cellphone and money, Buffalo police reported Saturday.

The bandits also ransacked the kitchen and bedroom, police said. The three were last seen running north on Vandalia Street toward Mackinaw Street after the home invasion at 2:50 p.m.
