A suspect has been arrested in the case of a Northridge couple found gagged and bound with zip-ties in their home, police said Thursday.

Their daughter discovered them tied up some time before 5 p.m. in the 9700 block Aldea Avenue. The victims were in their 80s, police said.

Police said a man had broken into the home, restrained the two, then stole one of their ATM cards and their car before escaping.

The couple’s daughter walked in and found her parents and called police.

The robber was arrested at a Bank of America when he tried to use the stolen ATM card, police said.
