HOLLADAY, Utah - Unified Police are looking for four suspects in a home invasion robbery overnight.

Police said four Polynesian men dressed in all black kicked the door in at a basement apartment in Holladay.

According to the two victims who were home at the time, the men said they were police officers and began searching the home and taking electronics.

One of the victims was able to run down the street and call 911.

The suspects chased him a few blocks and then ran before police arrived.

Police set up roadblocks and began searching for the men but didn’t find them.

“It's very disturbing that someone would go out there and announce themselves as police and commit a crime like this," Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said. "We're doing everything we can to locate these suspects and get them caught and off the street but we are asking for the public's help. If anybody knows who they are or has any information about this crime, we ask that they contact us."

Officers said the men were armed and are considered dangerous.

If you have any information, you can contact unified police at (801) 743-7000.
