Metro Police tell News Channel 5 they are looking for two suspects who broke into a south Nashville home and robbed a 58-year-old man at gunpoint at 2:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

Police say the suspects stacked milk crates on top of each other to break into a bedroom window of the home on Claiborne Street.

The man told police the suspects pointed shotguns at him and demanded money.

Investigators told Channel 5 the suspects then tied up the man with duct tape. He was eventually able to free himself, but not before the robbers took off with about $13 and two plasma television sets.
