Westwood home invasion robbers sought
The 7:40 a.m. home invasion occurred on the 300 block of Norcroft Avenue, just one block east of the UCLA campus, said LAPD spokesman Richard French.
The suspects wore dark clothing and bound up a nurse inside the home, French said. KTLA-TV reported that an elderly man in the home also was bound, but French could not confirm that.
A gardener contacted police while the robbery was taking place.
According to The Times' Westwood Crime page, Westwood has a relatively low rate of violent and property crimes compared to other neighborhoods in the L.A. area.
