Los Angeles police arrested a man who allegedly tied up an elderly  Northridge couple in an apparent home-invasion robbery, police said Wednesday night.

The suspect allegedly left with the an ATM card and vehicle that belonged to the victims, police said. He was taken into custody a short while later as he allegedly was trying to withdrawal money, according to police.
