PONTIAC, Mich. – A Pontiac man is accused of being part of a trio who kicked in the door of his mother's apartment early Sunday morning, threatened her with a sawed-off shotgun and robbed her, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office said.

The 54-year-old victim told deputies that the three men stormed her home in the North Hills Farms apartments on Firelite Lane at about 4:30 a.m.

The men threatened her with the shotgun and a knife from her own kitchen while they stole her cellphone and prescriptions, the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies were able to track down the suspects in a van on Baldwin Road. Arrested were an 18-year-old, 23-year-old and 30-year-old. All are Pontiac residents.

The Sheriff's Office said one of the suspects is the victim's son, but did not immediately identify him.

Deputies found a shotgun, knife and the stolen prescription medication, the Sheriff's Office said.
