LOS ANGELES - Terrifying moments for an elderly couple who were tied up and robbed during a home invasion.
The man and a woman were rushed to a hospital with injuries suffered during a home invasion in Bel-Air, authorities said.
Officers were dispatched at 12:56 a.m. Saturday, initially to a report of a burglary in the 1300 block of Casiano Road.
Police say three masked men entered the home through an unlocked sliding door and terrorized the elderly couple for three hours.
Police say the couple was tied up and at one point the suspects put a hood over the woman's face.
The couple repeatedly told them they didn't have any valuables in the home, but that didn't stop the men.
The woman in her 60s suffered from a wound and the man in his 70s suffered from injuries after being struck. The condition of the two victims was not immediately available.
According to police, the suspects managed to drag a safe out of the home. They also took apart the security system and doused the entire home with bleach.
A description of the suspects was not provided, but LAPD continue to search for them.
Another break-in occurred about six miles away from the area in Beverly Crest.
