A 72-year-old man and his female caregiver were the victims of a home-invasion robbery Tuesday morning (Sept. 14) on the 1300 block of Phyllis Avenue, police said.
Dispatchers received a call at 9:15 a.m. reporting that masked gunmen had broken into the Mountain View home and bound the man and his caregiver, police spokeswoman Jaime Garret stated in a press release. After the gunmen burglarized the home and fled, one of the occupants was able to call for help.
Both the man and the woman were still tied up when police arrived, Garret said. The man was struck in the face and was transported to a local hospital for his injuries. Detectives are investigating and it is not know what, if anything, was stolen from the home.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery can call the Mountain View Police Department anonymously at 650-903-6344.
