Investigators released video and images Tuesday in an attempt to generate tips identifying four men who tied up a family at gunpoint and robbed them during a home invasion last week in East Oak Lane.

The incident occurred just before 10:15 a.m. Monday, Nov. 6, on the 6600 block of N. 7th Street, according to authorities. The victim told officers he runs a business out of his home, and police said the suspects took a safe, guns and jewelry.

Four men in hoods and masks exited a car and pointed guns at the business owner and an employee, who were standing outside the property, investigators said. The gunmen forced the pair inside and assaulted the man and his family, police said. A child can be seen in the footage watching as they restrain adults inside the home.

Detectives said the four men fled in a black 2007 or 2008 Acura.
