FREMONT -- Three men forced their way into a woman's home at gunpoint over the weekend while she was home alone with her child, knocked her to the ground and stole a safe, police said.

Neither the women nor her child were injured during the attack.

Officers were called at 4:10 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 3800 block of Riverbend Trail for a report of a home invasion robbery, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.

The woman told detectives that shortly after she arrived home, she heard a knock at the door. As she answered the door, she was pushed to the ground by three men who forced their way into the home, Bosques said.

At least one of the men was armed with a firearm, Bosques said.

"They immediately retrieved a small safe and fled in a gray Toyota Camry with blacked-out rear windows," Bosques said.

Police did not have detailed descriptions of all three suspects, but they said that the first suspect was an Indian man, about 5 foot 9 with a stocky build, wearing a dark colored shirt, dark colored pants and black shoes. The second suspect was an Indian man, about 6 feet tall, with a skinny build, wearing a colored dark shirt, light colored pants and light colored shoes.
