LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Sun Valley couple was beaten and hog tied after confronting four men outside their home, authorities said.
The suspects may have been trying to jump a wall to burglarize one of two neighboring businesses, said LAPD Sgt. Fred Cueto.

Two of the suspects forced them back inside the home in the 8700 block of Bradley Street at gunpoint,added Cueto.
The robbers punched the male victim in the back of his head, and kicked the woman. Another woman who was present was also tied up by the suspects, according to reports.
Three children in the home were unhurt.

The suspects got away, and police don't have a good description of them, according to Cueto.
Among the items taken were a purse, a wallet, a cell phone,and some jewelry.
