Police say men robbed NC assisted living facility

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Police in Winston-Salem say a group of armed men robbed an assisted-living facility, restraining the workers and stealing from the residents' rooms.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ivNTnJ) as many as four men entered the Clare Bridge Retirement Home Wednesday morning, pulled out guns and restrained the employees. Police said the men, who had their faces covered, went into the rooms of the residents and took televisions, jewelry and other items.

A statement from police said one resident had to be treated for a minor injury.

Police have not said how the men entered the facility. They said there were no visible signs of a break-in. Visitors must ring a bell in the foyer, and are allowed in by an employee. Employees must enter a security code to get in.
