NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Belle Meade police are investigating a home invasion in which three masked men entered a home and robbed a female resident on Monday. 

Police told News 2 the men entered an unlocked door at a home on Lynnwood Lane around 2 p.m., forced the resident to the floor and robbed her at gunpoint.

During the robbery, the woman was pistol-whipped in the jaw.  She was not seriously injured and refused medical treatment.

The men got away with her wallet and cell phone.

They reportedly concealed their faces with masks or bandanas, and the victim was not able to get a good look at them.

Police stated the suspects are believed to be black men, but no other descriptions are available.

The crime has several similarities to a home invasion in Brentwood over the weekend.

A family on Moores Lane was also robbed at gunpoint after two men entered through an unlocked door and forced the family of four to the ground.

Those suspects, who were reportedly wearing bandanas to conceal their identities, got away with some cash, credit cards and electronics.

According to authorities, one of those stolen credit cards was used just hours later at a store in Nashville.

Belle Meade Police Chief Tim Eads told News 2 his department has been in contact with Brentwood police to determine if there is any connection in the two crimes, but he said it's too early in the investigation to tell.

Anyone with information about the crime can call the Belle Meade Police Department at 615-297-0241.
