SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — Santa Clara County authorities have arrested four men in connection with a home-invasion robbery that led to an intensive manhunt and school lockdowns in East San Jose.

The suspects are from San Francisco and their ages range from 19 to 27.

Officials say the suspects had entered the home Thursday morning, threatened two females with handguns and stole unspecified items before fleeing the scene. Two infants were home at the time.

Capt. Rick Sung says about 35 sheriff’s deputies, more than 20 San Jose police officers, a canine unit and a helicopter joined the search before the suspects were found.

At least three schools were placed on lockdown, and residents in the area were told to shelter in place during the manhunt.
