Suspects sought in Rancho Palos Verdes home invasion robbery

Police are investigating a Rancho Palos Verdes home invasion robbery in which the intruders ransacked a house with three residents inside for nearly three hours.

Two suspects knocked on the door of the home in the 4200 block of Miraleste Drive about 8 p.m. Tuesday and forced their way inside, investigators said.

A man, his wife and their daughter were home at the time and were apparently forced into a back bedroom, KTLA-TV reported. Then the suspects then spent several hours ransacking the house, taking an unknown amount of money. It was unclear if anything else was stolen, police said.

The man was able to get to a neighbor’s house to call police around 10:30 p.m. when they no longer heard any noise. None of the residents was injured in the robbery.
