DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Des Moines robbery victim told police she grew up with one of the robbers who broke into her home.
The Des Moines Register is reporting that the break-in robbery occurred about 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Twenty-nine-year-old Ericka Hayes says three men had pulled shirts over their faces. One of them pointed at gun at her and demanded money.

The men then left. It's unclear whether they got away with any money or goods.
