Northridgemap Police this morning are seeking three home-invasion robbers who entered a San Fernando Valley house and pistol-whipped a resident, authorities said.

The three armed suspects entered through unlocked door into the home in the 18900 block of Napa Street in Northridge at about 8:20 p.m. Thursday and ordered two people into a bedroom, said Sgt. Lonnie Tiano. The suspects hit one of the victims on the head with a gun and fled after taking jewelry and money.

The injured victim complained of head pain; the other resident was not hurt, Tiano said.

The suspects are believed to be in their early 20s, and one may be a white male, said Officer Rosario Herrera. No additional information about them was available, she said.
