A Providence family is thankful for their life after three gunmen invaded their home last evening. The family members were in their 140 Green Acres residence when they were visited by the men who pretended to be police officers.

The incident occurred at approximately 19:00hrs. Melanie Leung, her three children and other relatives who were visiting, were all tied up. Her husband, who was not at home when the incident occurred, is said to be a gold miner.

Reports reaching this newscast allege that the three men posed as police officers conducting a routine check-up on the neighbourhood. After answering the few questions the men posed, the family retired to the inside of their home.

A young son of the woman ventured through the backdoor shortly after and he was pounced upon by the bandits who then forcefully entered the home. They proceeded to bind their victims with duct tape and made good their escape with a quantity of household items. Luckily, no one was injured during the ordeal.

Residents are expressing grave concern over the situation since the community has suffered other robberies in the past.
