EULESS -- A group of armed masked robbers rushed into a house late Tuesday, herded several teens into a bedroom and then took several weapons including assault rifles from the residence before they fled, police said Thursday.
As the three bandits rounded up the teens, the mother of one of the teenagers ran to her bedroom, jumped out a window and called 911, police said.
Police arrested two of the three robbers in Bedford late Wednesday afternoon and recovered the weapons that were stolen in the home invasion.
Authorities continued their search Thursday for the third bandit.

Two brothers remained in the Euless City Jail Thursday on suspicion of aggravated robbery. Police identified them as Brian Anthony Adams, 18, and Joshua James Adams, 17, both of Bedford.
“We still don’t have a name on the third suspect yet,” Euless police Lt. John Williams said Thursday.
The home invasion happened about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 900 block of W. Midway Drive.
According to police reports, a woman, her three teenage children and two friends of the teens were at the home. Three men -- one wearing a ski mask and two with bandanas over their faces -- rushed into the house when one of the teens was about to leave, police said.
Two of the bandits were armed with long guns and one had a pistol, police said.
“They moved all the teens into a bedroom,” Williams said. “They also knew that there were weapons in the house and asked the teens where they were.”
The robbers took two assault rifles and several handguns which the family was keeping in the house for other relatives, police said.
Police arrived within minutes of receiving the 911 call, but the robbers had fled the house.
Working on leads and tips, police identified two brothers suspected in the home invasion. Police stopped a car with Brian Adams in it about 5 p.m. Wednesday on Airport Freeway near Forest Ridge Drive in Bedford then arrested his younger brother about two hours later at a home in the 1800 block of Realistic Court.
