BATON ROUGE- Police are still looking for three men who forced their way into a home near LSU's campus and robbed a man at gunpoint.

It happened on Tula Street near E. State Street, just a block away from the Northgate of LSU.

"They busted in right here and one guy, just stood right here with the gun at me," said Thomas Baggett the victim of the home invasion.

Baggett normally let his friends and neighbors in his home after a simple knock and never suspected anyone else when the men knocked on the door.

"We have our neighbors over here, there's three people that hang out with us everyday so I thought it was one of them," said Baggett. "They just looked like some young guys so I just sat there and did what they said, I didn't want to start anything, I wasn't even going to try and stand up."

The men stole two laptops, Baggett's cell phone, a camera and his roommate's flat screen TV, but he's just happy he still has his life.

"I don't think I'll be saying come in anymore or leaving the door unlocked," said Baggett.

Baton Rouge Police don't have any suspects, but a witness says the men got away in a red SUV.
