Police responded to a home invasion Wednesday afternoon in north suburban Morton Grove.
According to police, three men wearing masks entered a residence about 3 p.m. in the 7800 block of Long Avenue.
The homeowner told police he found three burglars after he heard noises from the upstairs bedrooms, police said. The suspects fled the scene after the man confronted the subjects, police said.
"It's shocking that there were people next door while I was inside with my 1-year-old," neighbor Mandy McDonald said. "I opened up my door just to see what was going on, to see if we were safe, and they said to go back in."
While no injuries were reported, the suspects were able to takeoff with a large amount of jewelry and a cell phone, police said.
No suspects are in custody as Morton Grove police investigate.
