LAGUNA BEACH (CBSLA) – Two armed, masked men are on the loose after breaking into a Laguna Beach home late Monday night, tying up a 71-year-old woman and stealing cash and guns.
The home invasion occurred at approximately 11 p.m. in the 20000 block of Laguna Canyon Road.
According to Laguna Beach police, two suspects dressed in all black and carrying handguns broke into the home, tied up a resident and told her they were looking for cash and firearms.
The victim’s security cameras caught the clear and frightening images.
After scouring the home, the suspects fled with cash and several guns. The victim was able to call 911, police said. There was no word on any injuries.
Investigators are calling it an “isolated incident.”
One neighbor told CBS2’s Michele Gile that he’s had trouble with homeless people on his property recently but nothing like a scary home invasion.
Police told Gile the victim managed to partially untie herself and call 911 for help.
There were no specific suspect descriptions. Because their faces were covered in masks, it is hard for police to give a complete description but said one of the men had “a big nose.”
Anyone with information on the case should call police at (949) 497-0701.
