A 47-year-old San Carlos man was tied up while at least two suspects ransacked his home in a robbery in the city this afternoon, a police sergeant said. Officers responded to the home-invasion robbery in the 1300 block of Hull Drive after the victim managed to free himself and call police, Sgt. Marti Overton said. The victim, who is one of six people who live in the home, said between two and four suspects tied him up as they rummaged through the home. He said one of the suspects may have had a gun.”He felt something cold on the back of his head,” Overton said. The victim suffered a minor injury and did not require treatment. One of the home’s owners returned to the residence following the robbery and told officers it appeared some cash and jewelry had been taken. The suspects were described as men between 20 and 30 years old. No arrests have been made in the case, but Overton said investigators have obtained some leads. While such crimes are rare for the city, “crime has really gone through the roof in this past six-to-eight-month period,” Overton said, pointing to a string of about 10 residential burglaries that happened in the first two months of the year.
