— Collier County sheriff's deputies are asking the public for help in finding four men who forced their way into a Golden Gate Estates house Saturday.

Michael Downs, 37, and Michelle Facciolli, 55, were confronted in their yard in the 1100 block of 11th Street SW by four men shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday, deputies said.

One of the four men showed that he had a handgun and forced the victims into the house, where Suzanne Pantalone, 47, was located, sheriff's officials said.

All three victims were tied up, their phones were smashed, and the house was ransacked. The robbers took an undisclosed amount of cash, jewelry and other items before leaving the home, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies searched the area but didn't find the suspects.

Specific descriptions weren't available but deputies said two of the robbers were white males and two were Hispanic males.

All four suspects were last ween wearing light-colored hoodies and long pants, deputies said.

Anyone with information should call the Collier Sheriff's Office at 239-252-9300 or may remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
