BALDWIN (KDKA)- Baldwin Police are looking for a group of armed men who forced their way into an apartment filled with children Wednesday night.
According to police, the incident happened around 10 p.m. near the intersection of Keeport and Travis Drives in The Residences at South Hills Complex.

Eight children in the apartment, ages one to 13, hid in a locked bedroom.
The woman went with the men and was later dropped off on Orchard Drive in West Mifflin.
