Terrell Edwards, 23, of Waldorf, Jeremy Yates, 24, of Oxen Hill, and Julius Andrews, 25, of La Plata, allegedly forced their way into a home at gunpoint and duck-taped a family of five shortly before midnight.

Reports from the Toledo Blade newspaper say a 16-year-old in the house managed to escape while still bound in duct tape and get to a neighbor’s house to call 911. He reportedly knocked on the neighbor's door with his head.

Police arrived on the scene and found the three men still inside the house. They fled and each was caught.  One of them didn’t make it off the property before being caught, The Blade reports.

They were arraigned on charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and aggravated burglary, and held in the Lucas County (Ohio) Jail on $300,000 bond.

Yates and Andrews have extensive criminal histories in Maryland.

Andrews was sentenced to 10 years for felony Armed Robbery in 2003, with six years of the sentence suspended.

Yates was found guilty of Armed Robbery in 2002 and sentenced to 10 years. Eight years of his sentence was suspended.

Edwards does not have a felony criminal record like his alleged accomplices, but he has 13 open traffic citations from an incident in 2004 in Charles County that he never answered, according to Maryland court records.

News agencies in Ohio reporting on Sunday’s home invasion said it is unknown why the three men traveled to Toledo.
