RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. — Two thieves, one armed with a gun, confronted a woman in a North County home Thursday, then tied her up and stole jewelry before fleeing, leaving her bound and alone in the large residence.
The victim made an emergency call shortly after 3 p.m. to report the home-invasion robbery in the 5000 block of El Mirlo in Rancho Santa Fe, according to the sheriff’s department.
The woman, who was uninjured, said the robbers appeared to be in their late 20s. One had long, straight blond hair and was wearing gray jeans, a striped shirt and sunglasses, she reported. His accomplice, a tall man with short hair, was wearing a baseball cap.
The suspects may have driven away in a light blue, metallic Kia or something similar, deputies said.
