NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff's Office is searching for two men who robbed a family Thursday night at their home.

The home invasion robbery was reported shortly after 11 p.m. at a home on San Remo Boulevard in North Lauderdale.

Authorities said the robbers ordered the family to the downstairs bathroom and held them there at gunpoint.

The thieves left with cash from the home, deputies said.

Authorities said one robber was described as a heavyset black male, between 25 and 30, with facial hair. Deputies said he was wearing black pants and a black shirt and his head was covered with what appeared to be a shirt.

The victim told detectives that he was able to see that the robber was bald.

The second robber was described a black male, weighing about 150 pounds and between the ages of 25 and 30. He was also dressed all in black with a shirt over his head.
