Lafayette police are searching for three armed men who reportedly came up behind a Martino Road resident, forced him into his home in a search for valuables and who fled in the homeowner’s BMW.
The car was believed to have made it through the tunnel. Unconfirmed reports indicate the car may have been found abandoned in Oakland.
It is believed the incident occurred at approximately 8:15 p.m.
The homeowner was treated for a head wound of some type. It was not known if he was struck with the weapon or was injured in some other way.
The suspects were initially described as black males in their mid to late 20s.
