ARMED SUSPECTS INVADE, ROB HOME.
Three armed robbers invaded a West Hills home Wednesday morning, tying up their victims before ransacking the house, police reported Thursday.
About 10 a.m., suspects rushed in through an unlocked door of a home in the 8100 block of Fallbrook Avenue, police said. They tied up two men and two women - and left with more than $500 in cash and an $800 wedding ring.
An 18-month-old baby was also in the house at the time.
No one was hurt and no arrests have been made.
The family ``had just woken up and were preparing for breakfast and their daily routine,'' said Detective Ken DeBie of the Los Angeles Police Department's West Valley Division robbery unit.
The male victims are reportedly ages 25 and 44, according to LAPD Detective Bob Howe of the West Valley Division. The women are 32 and 67.
The suspects, who wore bandannas around their faces, were described as being in their late teens to early 20s.
The case has been handed over to the LAPD's Asian Crimes unit. The downtown detail handles cases involving Asian victims or suspects, tracks gang activity and provides translation services, said Investigator Khoa Tran.
Police said the suspects are Asian and three of the four victims are Asian. They do not know if the suspects know the victims.
