A Foster City resident was robbed at gunpoint inside his home on Wednesday afternoon, a police spokesman said. Officers responded to a report of a home invasion robbery in the 300 block of Tampa Court at around 4:05 p.m., Foster City police Capt. Joe Pierucci said. The resident had just arrived home from work when three suspects entered through an open garage door, Pierucci said.

The robbers confronted the man inside the home and asked him where he kept his money, Pierucci said. One was armed with a silver semiautomatic handgun. The suspects then stole more than $200 in cash, an iPod, various credit cards and keys, police said. The victim was forced into a closet, where he remained until he heard the robbers leave, Pierucci said. He was not injured, and called police.

Arriving officers searched the neighborhood but did not find the suspects. All three were described as black men between 18 and 20 years old. The suspect carrying the gun was about 5 feet 8 inches tall with an average build, a light complexion and short black hair. He was wearing a black shirt and black pants. The two other suspects were described as about 6 feet tall, with slender builds and dark complexions. They were wearing black shirts, black pants and black beanies.
