Man, 88, Beaten in Home Invasion; Robbers Get $65

February 11, 2001

Two armed men burst into a La Habra home Saturday, knocking an 88-year-old resident to the floor before ransacking the place as the man and his elderly wife looked on helplessly, police said.

The robbers kicked the man in the head, then tied him up and sat him in a chair, La Habra Police Lt. Joe Milazzo said.

The robbery occurred about 5:10 p.m. in the 1300 block of East Brookdale Avenue. Police said later that the intruders got away with $65 cash.

Paramedics treated the beaten man for head injuries, Milazzo said. His wife was unhurt.

One of the suspects was described as Hispanic, age 25 to 30 and wearing dark clothes. Police said he was carrying a revolver. The other robber was white and around the same age, police said.
