Disabled man, caretakers zip-tied during Studio City home invasion: LAPD

A disabled man, his child, and their caretakers were terrorized by a group of criminals during what authorities described as a home invasion in Studio City, police said. 

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call from a home on Alta View Drive, near Mulholland Drive, around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. 

According to LAPD, one of the victims went outside to take out the trash. While performing the routine task, the victim was confronted outside by a group of suspects, LAPD told FOX 11's Gina Silva.

The victim said he was held at gunpoint before the suspects beat him up. The suspects then went inside the Studio City home and proceeded to zip-tie the first victim and three others who also happened to be inside. 

Those assaulted include the first victim's bedridden child and their two caretakers. 

The first victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK, officials said. 

LAPD does not have the description of the suspects, other than the fact that there were between four and five males.

The group of suspects ransacked the home and left the scene from the backdoor of the house. The suspects fled in two Hyundai vehicles, LAPD was told.

The alleged attack has now placed Studio City neighbors on edge.

"We've lived here for 35 years and never had any kind of police activity like this," said neighbor Michael Thatcher.
