Police say four Fort Carson soldiers are under arrest in connection with a home invasion involving a family they knew.

The soldiers, who range in age from 19 to 21, were arrested on suspicion of burglary, menacing and child abuse after turning themselves in Sunday night in Colorado Springs.

Police say a husband and wife and their two young children were at home when the four soldiers walked in, one carrying a handgun. The family told police that the man threatened to shoot them and demanded property. When they refused, they said the soldiers left and said they would return.

Fort Carson spokeswoman Dani Johnson says Army officials are cooperating with the police in their investigation.
