Police said it occurred at approximately 11:40 p.m. within a residence located on Hartwell Street, between Central Avenue and Hamilton Street.

In this incident, the victims, four 20-year-old males, New Brunswick residents, reported that five perpetrators entered the home through an unsecured door.

Police said once inside, the perpetrators displayed two firearms and removed several items of value from the victims.

The victims were not physically injured during this incident and the perpetrators fled the area on foot, police said.
