They said a warrant has been issued for a fourth suspect, Alexandre Lohrengel, 19.

Police said previously that a woman first knocked on the door to confirm the address with the homeowner, left shortly thereafter, and two men then knocked on the door and identified themselves as police. They wore police insignias and bulletproof vests, according to police.

The suspects stormed into the home, beating up the homeowner, who had to be taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash as well as weapons and other items, according to police.

It wasn’t immediately known whether the suspects have attorneys.
