Overland Park Police are investigating after an armed robbery at the Cherbourg Apartments, near 87th Street and Glenwood Street.

Police say the incident occurred around 4:30 a.m. but was not reported to police until 4:40 a.m..

The apartment residents, a man and a woman, tell police that four men kicked in the apartment door and demanded money. All four of the men were wearing ski masks.

A statement from Overland Park Police says that one of the suspects was  "carrying some type of rifle and another had a handgun."

Earlier reports indicated that one of the suspects was armed with a TEC-9 or similar style weapon, a second suspect was carrying an assault rifle, possibly an AK-47 and a third suspect had a pistol.

All of the suspects were described as black males wearing ski masks. The men took electronics, jewelry and clothing items before leaving the apartment.

Overland Park Police believe the victims were specifically targeted.

No one was injured.
