One person is in the hospital after what police say was an armed home invasion by four police imposters.

Four men forcibly entered the home on the 53 hundred block of West Altgeld Saturday afternoon dressed, and identifying themselves as police officers.

Seven people - including children - were inside the house at the time.

They were allegedly tied-up by the offenders and one victim was pistol-whipped.

The robbers stole several items and took off in a vehicle.

No one is in custody.
