Blytheville police are searching for several men suspected of aggravated residential burglary.

According to the incident report, police responded to the 100-block of East Missouri around 11 p.m. Monday.

When officers arrived on the scene, they spoke with the homeowner who told them she, as well as her niece and her five young children, were in the home when they heard a loud noise. 

The victim said a door on the west side of the home was forced open and five unknown men wearing masks entered the home.
