Three men were scared away from a home invasion in west Ottawa Monday night.

Ottawa police said the men forced their way into a home in the 1000 block of Erindale Drive just after 9:00 p.m.

They forced a female resident to the ground and demanded money before her husband confronted them, according to police.

The three suspects then fled without any money.

They are described as two white males and a black male, all wearing hoodies and in their early 20s.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact their robbery section at 613-236-1222 extension 5116 or Crime Stoppers at 613-232-8477.
