Elderly Couple Tied Up During Home Invasion Robbery In San Jose

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) -- An elderly couple was tied up while several intruders ransacked their San Jose home on Monday evening, police said Tuesday.

The home invasion robbery occurred about 6:50 p.m. in the 6700 block of Bret Harte Drive in the city's Almaden Valley neighborhood.

Police said several male suspects entered the home, brandished weapons and tied up the residents, a 76-year-old woman and a 73-year-old man.

They then stole property from the home and fled in the victims' cars, which were parked in the garage, police said.

The cars are described as a green 2007 Toyota Highlander with a license plate number of 5XIU520 and a 1997 Toyota Camry with a license plate number of 3UNG960.

The suspects have not been identified and remained at large late Tuesday morning.
