A dramatic 911 call reveals a terrified seven-year-old boy begging emergency dispatchers to send police to his California home where three armed robbers were threatening his parents.

The boy called emergency operators early yesterday after the gunmen broke into the Norwalk home.

He said he was hiding in a locked bathroom with his younger sister while the suspects threatened his mother and father at gunpoint.

On the recording, he begs the operator to send police quickly, "a lot of them... and soldiers too".

When the suspects broke into the bathroom and grabbed the boy, he screamed and told them he called 911. The suspects fled without taking anything.

The three men remain at large.
