Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - Buffalo SWAT Team officers were called into action following a report of a stolen bicycle.

Police say a group of five or six men assaulted a man, then stole his bike.

The suspects took off and hid inside a house on the 300 block of Normal Avenue on the city's west side. Central District officers were called to the scene, and saw a gun being tossed out of the window of that home.

A four-year-old child was in the house and was not injured.

The suspects surrendered without incident.

Several people were taken into custody, and face possible charges.
