3 suspects sought in Clairemont Mesa home invasion robbery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Three thieves, one armed with a pistol, stormed into a Clairemont Mesa home Monday, bound and gagged a family of five with duct tape and stole money before fleeing, leaving the victims to free themselves.

The robbers, who were wearing ski masks over their faces, entered the house in the 4000 block of Mount Everest Boulevard through a back door about 9 a.m., according to San Diego police.

After binding the occupants -- four adults and a 10-year-old child -- the bandits collected an undisclosed amount of money and fled out the front door, SDPD Lt. Andra Brown said.

It took the victims about a half-hour to free themselves and call police, the lieutenant said. Medics took one of them, a woman with a pre-existing medical problem, to a hospital for an evaluation.

None of the other members of the family reported any injuries, though one complained of some type of minor pain caused by the ordeal.
