A Chelsea family barely out of bed was rescued from three armed robbers early yesterday morning, but the suspects kept cops at bay for four hours before the standoff finally ended peacefully.

"It ended up being, thankfully, very safe. It was just a long ordeal," said Chelsea police Capt. Keith Houghton, who directed plaudits to the Boston police SWAT team that had his department's back.
