Authorities in Posey County are searching for three suspects after two adults and a child were held at gunpoint Tuesday night.
Officials say three men entered a mobile home on Lynn Drive in the Mt. Vernon Mobile Home Community by West Elementary School.
Mt. Vernon's police chief says the initial call about the robbery came just after 8:00 Tuesday night.
The man living in the mobile home, with his girlfriend and her 8-year-old son, says he was hit in the head and that the suspects put guns to all three of their heads, including that 8-year-old, threatening to kill them and asking where the money was.
He tells 14 News they got away with $10,000 that was in a closet.
As the suspects took off, a neighbor was watching.
"They went running just as fast as they could straight across. My mother lives two doors over and I was wondering what they were doing, so I walked over there and I don't know where they went. They just vanished," neighbor Rocky Axton says.
Authorities are still looking out for the three suspects.
