Vacaville police officers avoided a possible tragedy late last night after a group of males were seen robbing a house on the 900 block of Topaz Circle.

After responding to a call about suspicious subjects climbing through the window of a house, the first officer on scene monitored the situation until back up arrived.

It was later determined that the group of young males, armed with toy Nerf guns, were simulating an armed home invasion at one of their own homes for fun.
