Home invasion robbers zip-tie man in Sherman Oaks
Los Angeles police were looking Tuesday for two men suspected of posing as deliverymen and robbing a Sherman Oaks home.
The men knocked on the door of the house in the 4900 block of Matilija Avenue and said they had a delivery to make.
As soon as the elderly male resident opened the door, one of the suspects struck him in the head with what the man believed was a gun, said Sgt. Matthew Jacobik of the LAPD's Van Nuys division.
Officials expected to be able to provide a more detailed description of the suspects later. The home targeted by the robbers appeared to have been selected at random and the crime an isolated event, police said.
