CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Three men have been arrested following an armed robbery in Cedar Falls Saturday night.  It happened just before midnight at a home in the 1000 block of Bluff Street.

We spoke with a victim of the home invasion.  As you might imagine, he was pretty shaken up by the whole ordeal.  The home that was broken into was a multi-unit apartment, and several residents were apparently there when it happened.  But only one unit was actually burglarized. 

The victim says he and his girlfriend were inside sleeping when they heard a loud noise.  When he got up to check things out, he says one man held him at gunpoint, while two others were hauling out loot from inside his home.  And while the trio left with lots of the couple's Christmas presents, from a TV to video game system, along with the couple's wallets and cell phones, neither of them were physically harmed in the incident.

A short time after leaving the home, Waterloo police located the three suspects. The victim believes they may have been able to track them down, because his girlfriend's cell phone that was stolen had a GPS locating device. 

The three suspects have now been charged with burglary and drug possession.  They are: 18-year-old Jacob Michael Noelting-Petra, 21-year-old Cristian Scott Lucier, and 19-year-old Johntrell Eugene Leonard Humphrey.
