Posted Friday, April 25, 2014 --- 3:04 p.m.

Madison Police say three people are in custody following an armed home invasion.

A concerned citizen called police after spotting several men entering an apartment in the 1700 block of Onsgard Rd. shortly after 5:45 a.m. Friday. The witness said one of the men had a long gun.

Police arrived just as the armed robbery was ending. Officers arrested three of the four men that ran from the apartment.

Some stolen property was recovered, along with a shotgun and facsimile handgun. There were no injuries.

Police say this was the second call involving the same apartment this week. Detectives believe suspects specifically targeted the residence in both cases.

Officers want to publicly thank the witness for making the quick decision to call police in Friday morning's incident.
