Police are searching for two men who bound and beat an elderly couple during a home-invasion robbery in Pinole early Sunday morning, police said. The two suspects, described by police only as two white men possibly in their 40s, reportedly tricked the victims, a 72-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man, into letting them inside their home at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Once inside, the men taped up the woman and then beat the man until he agreed to open his safe, police said. The men then stole several items, including guns, from the safe before fleeing in the victim’s gray 2008 Honda Accord, which has a license plate number of 6BOF304. The male victim was transported to a hospital, where he was being treated for bruises, cuts and a serious head wound. He is expected to recover, police said.
