Alton Police said four men were involved in the home invasion attempt on South New Jersey Street.  

Two of the four men got away from authorities.  

Investigators said the men were trying to recover the marijuana that was stolen from them.  Police found five bundles of marijuana on the property and arrested the three men inside the home.  

"Scary, it is scary," Neighbor Erika Delgado said.  "I fear for our lives, because I have three kids. They're small, 11, five and three. I had just dropped them off from school... Well, I thought it was a safe neighborhood, but now with this happening, I don't know."    

The Alton Police had help from Mission Police and a Department of Public Safety helicopter in the man hunt.
