An investigation was under way Wednesday into a home invasion robbery in Rancho Palos Verdes, where a man, his wife and daughter were held in house for nearly three hours while two men ransacked the home before escaping with cash, authorities said.
The man reported around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday that he and his wife and daughter had been held inside the house at 4200 Miraleste Drive since about 8 p.m., said Lt. Greg Ahn of the Los Angeles County sheriff's Lomita Station.
Two men knocked on the door and forced their way into the home, Ahn said.
It was unclear if they were armed, and Ahn did not know if the victims were tied up or otherwise restrained by the robbers, who made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No injuries were reported in the robbery, which took place in an upscale neighborhood where such crimes are unusual, he said.
