A male entered a home near Concord Place and Nantucket Drive in unincorporated Darien about 2 p.m. and distracted the homeowner by taking him outside, according to a statement from the DuPage County sheriff’s office. Two other males then entered the house and started going through it.

The suspects left the area in a black SUV, the sheriff’s office said. All three were white males, and one of them has an Eastern European accent.
