Authorities searched Thursday for three men who invaded a woman’s Long Beach home and tied her up while they robbed her.

The woman, who lives alone in the 3600 block of Walnut Avenue, was tied up for 45 to 60 minutes before she was able to free herself and call the police around 12:15 a.m., said Sgt. Charli Alu of the Long Beach Police Department.

By then, the men had fled. One of them was armed, but the woman wasn't hurt, he said.

The men escaped with many of the woman's belongings, Alu said.

[For the Record, Nov. 10, 9:44 a.m.: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated the woman lives on Walnut Street; she lives on Walnut Avenue.]
