CORALVILLE, Iowa - Coralville Police are investigating a weekend robbery.Officials say four men walked through an unlocked door of a home on the 700 block of 14th Avenue early Saturday morning.

Police say the men walked into the home with guns and knives. That’s when they struck two people in the head with a handgun. They then pushed the family including one adult and two children into a bathroom and demanded several items in the home.

Police are treating the incident as a targeted home invasion and not just a random attack. They say that’s because the suspects asked for specific things inside the home.

The victims describe the suspects as black men with slender builds. The men were wearing all black and masks. One of them is described as being over 6 feet tall. Anyone with information is asked to call Iowa City Area Crime Stoppers. Police are still investigating the robbery.
