GRANADA HILLS (CBSLA) – Police are searching for three men who hurt and tied up a 90-year-old woman and ransacked her Granada Hills home Monday morning.
The home invasion robbery occurred at around 11:30 a.m. Monday at a home in the 11800 block of Andasol Avenue.
According to Los Angeles police, the three suspects smashed a back door to get inside. They then bound a 90-year-old woman, stole items from the home and fled in a car.
The victim was hurt during the robbery and had to be hospitalized, police said.
Family members of the victim told CBS2 the victim is recovering.
She was apparently sleeping when the brazen robbers entered the home.
“You don’t think somebody would be vicious enough to go into someone’s house and tie up the old lady and to steal something,” neighbor Jack Geyshenian told CBS2. “I hope they get caught. And get punished.”
Images of the men in Monday’s incident were captured on home security video. Two of the suspects were described as black and the third as white. All three were wearing hooded sweatshirts.
“It’s very concerning, I’m concerned for my family’s safety, for the safety of our neighbors,” said one neighbor who chose not to appear on camera.
She told CBS2 her family was also assaulted by home invasion robbers several years ago.
“It was very traumatizing,” she said.
The getaway car was described as a black four-door 2017 or 2018 model Audi sedan with tinted windows.
Anyone with information on the suspects should call the LAPD.
