Robbers Stun, Gag Siblings in Violent Calabasas Home Invasion

The family has not returned home since the attack.

Police are asking for help in identifying three suspects responsible for a violent home invasion robbery in Calabasas.

The robbery, captured in home surveillance video, happened August 6 when two men wearing orange construction vests assaulted a male resident on the 22500 block of Charlestown Drive, binding his hands and feet with zip ties after he answered the front door, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Michael Maher said in a press release.

A third suspect entered the home and all three began "pillaging" the place for valuables, Maher said.

The homeowner, who did not wish to be identified, said the male resident was actually her 18-year-old son, who the suspects stunned with a Taser as they forced their way inside. Later, as her 24-year-old daughter entered the home, the men grabbed and gagged her with a fist until she lost consciousness, she said.

The thieves took everything, the homeowner said, pointing out that she wasn't wearing earrings because she no longer had any to wear. In all, more than $200,000 in cash, jewelry and "personal valuables" were taken, Maher said.

Since the attack, the family has not returned home.

The city of Calabasas has approved a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. Police are looking for two getaway vehicles: a black 2010 to 2015 five or seven series BMW sedan and a gray 2015 to 2017 Chevrolet Impala sedan.
