The two residents resisted, so the three men left the area in an older maroon/red Oldsmobile four-door that had a possible fourth person inside.
One of the three was described as a black man wearing glasses and a dark blue or black hoodie. The second was also described as a black man, about 5'10" and 200 lbs., wearing a black hoodie with the word "Nike" and a white swoosh. The third was described as a black man, 6' and 175 lbs, wearing a ski mask, as well as a black hoodie with "Adidas" across the chest and three stripes down the right sleeve.
The possible fourth man was described as a light-skinned black man with a tattoo on the left-side of his neck, wearing a winter coat and possibly a green stocking cap.
The three men who entered the residence took a "small amount of property" of an unknown value.
Jefferson City Police detectives are investigating.
