ITHACA, N.Y. — Police are looking for three men they say robbed an apartment at gunpoint early Friday morning near Ithaca College.

Police responded around 2:30 a.m. to an apartment in the 200 block of Coddington Road after the incident, according to a news release from Ithaca College. A resident said cash and items were taken from the home.

The suspects are described as the following:
