Two men, one armed with a gun and the other wearing a ski mask, forced their way into a Logan Heights home today and held a resident and her two children captive while looting the residence, authorities reported.

The thieves, who were dressed in black clothing, burst into the house in the 300 block of Sampson Street about 11 a.m. and demanded money from the woman, according to San Diego police.

The robbers then spent about 20 minutes going through rooms, searching for valuables, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.

They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewelry.

The victims, who were uninjured, said one of the bandits appeared to be about 20 years old and the other roughly 30, the sergeant said. The older one, the gunman, was wearing black sunglasses, according to Battrick.
