A Providence woman and her 4-year-old daughter were robbed at knife point at home. Police say three masked men forced their way inside the house on Oxford Ave around 1 PM Thursday.

The woman told officers one man grabbed a kitchen knife and forced her and her child into the bathroom while the suspects ransacked the home. The robbers then took off.

"It's really like crazy, because this has never happened before. Four years I've been living here and it's never happened before," said neighbor Leo Menendez who saw cruisers respond to the house.

Neither the woman or her daughter were hurt. The robbers got away with electronics including an iPad. So far no arrests.
