Three men attempted to rob an Akron home Monday night while three children were inside the residence, according to police.

A resident living in the 1300 block of Dewitt Drive told police at around 10:30 p.m. three males entered the home through a south side bedroom window.

Once inside, one of the males, armed with a handgun, demanded the 18-year-old resident gather up the children and get into a bedroom.

The unknown males ransacked the house looking for car keys to a 2017 Chevy Impala that was parked in the driveway.

They were unsuccessful and fled the home. All three males are believed to be between 15 and 20 years old.

Anyone who was in the area during the attempted robbery is asked to call the Akron Police Department at 330-375-2552.
