BARRIE, Ont. -- A teenage party announced on social media led to a frightening home invasion Saturday night.

Four men crashed the party after two high school students, aged 14 and 15, tweeted about it.

The men who showed up uninvited were initially allowed in, but when they brought out drugs, the girls quickly uninvited them, Const. Angie Butler said.

"They were angry when they were asked to leave and said they would be back," Butler said.

The men left around 11 p.m. but returned at 1:15 a.m. with handguns and forced their way into the home through the sliding patio doors.

"They took away all the girls' cellphones, threatened them and hit the boy on the head with the gun," Butler said.

The boy required 16 stitches to his head.

The six teenaged girls and boy watched in horror as the four men punched holes in walls and trashed the home before they left.

A few days later, the mother is left shaking her head at her daughter's behaviour.
