SAN DIEGO — A 39-year-old woman was restrained by two masked men suspected of a home invasion in the Colinas Del Sol neighborhood of San Diego, authorities said Friday morning.

The woman was in her apartment on Trojan Avenue near 52nd Street around 6:30 p.m. Thursday when she heard a lot of knocking on her door. She cracked the door open and two men forced their way inside, restrained her and demanded money, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

The suspects went through her apartment looking for money, then left. It was unclear if anything was taken and the victim was not hurt, Heims said.
