An elderly Meridian woman was the victim of a home invasion robbery Tuesday night. It happened at around 11:30 p.m. in the 1400 of 47th Avenue.

The Meridian Police Department is investigating the incident.

"A lady was inside her house watching TV. She heard something in the next room and when she got up to investigate, three black males were inside the house with her. Two of them watched her in the living room as the third one pilfered through her house. They stole money from inside the house and fled the scene," said MPD spokesman Dean Harper.

Harper said one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. The woman was not harmed during the incident.

Anyone with information concerning the crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at (601) 485-1860.
