Three people were placed behind bars Sunday after Bridgeport police were dispatched to a home at 48 Mann Street for a robbery in progress.
The victim stated that two male subjects kicked in his back door.
Both subjects allegedly brandished handguns and allegedly threatened murder and then beat the home owner.
The suspects then left, after stealing the homeowner's jewelry and cash.
Then at 11:00 a.m. Sunday, the two male subjects and a female returned to the home for a second time.
This time when they entered the back door the homeowner got away to call 911.
Brian L. Williamson, Richard D. West and Michelle Brown, all of Bridgeport, were transported to the Belmont County Jail.
All three suspects are facing multiple felony and misdemeanor charges.
