8-year-old calls police while mother held at gunpoint

(WXYZ) - An 8-year-old called police after two men entered his family's apartment in Pontiac and held his mother at gunpoint.

After police arrived, the mother told deputies that two men forced her to the floor with guns and demanded money. They ransacked her purse and kitchen cabinets and then fled. Deputies say that her four children were home during the attack on Tuesday morning, but no one was injured.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is now searching for two suspects, both men in their 20s and last seen dressed all in black fleeing the 200 block of Ridgemont.
