Police on Sunday were searching for two men -- on weighing 300 pounds and the other only 130 -- who aleegedly had set out to rob a drug house by posing as cops.

Instead, the pair apparently went to the wrong house and victimized two "hardworking homeowners" by mistake.

Within minutes of entering the home in the 1700 block of North Lawndale, the pair realized "Oops, this was the wrong spot," said Grand Central Area Violent Crimes Sgt. Max Guajardo.

The pair had broken into the house with guns drawn, claiming they were police officers looking for drugs, authorities said.

Went to police in handcuffs.

The heavier home invader sported a leather holder around his neck holding a tiny gold star, similar to a Chicago Police star, Guajardo said. That man also claimed to have a piece of paper that authorized him to search for drugs.

The pair handcuffed the male homeowner, ordered him to lie on the ground and took $200 out of his wallet at gunpoint, Guajardo said. Then the two fled, leaving the man's wife and 3 year old boy unharmed.

The male victim was still handcuffed behind his back when he walked into the Grand Central District to report the 9:30 pm Friday incident.

The attackers were described as both Hispanic. One was roughly 35 years old. One was roughly 35 years old, 5 feet 11 inches, 300 pounds, wearing a long sleeve gray shirt and blue jeans; the other was about 24 years old, 5 feet 6 inches, 130 pounds, wearing a green jacket, dark pants and a New York baseball cap.
