A panic alarm brought Bedford police to a Broad Brook Road mansion in Bedford Hills on Saturday night after an apparent home invasion and armed robbery, officials said.

Police were alerted to the incident on the unpaved road lined with gated homes at about 9:41 p.m. A panic alarm, followed by a 911 call from someone who lives at the home, prompted a police response.

On Sunday, a dark gray Silverado pickup truck blocked the home's driveway on a property lined with stone walls. The home is set back from the road, obscured by a stand of trees.

A large police presence was reported there Saturday night, with multiple agencies responding.

It was unknown how many people were in the home at the time of the robbery or what, if anything, was taken. Bedford police said no victims needed to be taken to the hospital after police arrived.

A call for more information to police and the apparent owner of the home revealed no additional information.
