They attempted to stop the car, initiating a brief pursuit that ended with the suspects successfully evading police. They were last seen near Westminster Boulevard and Bolsa Chica Road, police said. 

"Inside the residence, officers found four victims: an adult male, an adult female, a 7-year-old girl, and a 4-year-old girl," said the police statement. 

They learned that the suspects, two of which were allegedly armed with handguns, forced their way into the home and entered the man's room, demanding him to tell them where he kept money. 

"The suspects allegedly held the adult male at gunpoint while they ransacked his bedroom and stole several valuable items," the statement said. 

It remains unclear exactly what was taken from the home. 

No injuries were reported. 

Anyone with further information was urged to contact investigators at (714) 548-3783.
