Three people were held captive, including a 95-year-old man and his 87-year-old wife, while their Hacienda Heights home was ransacked, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said Tuesday.

The department says two men entered the home in the 15000 block of Facilidad Street through a bathroom window before 10 p.m. Monday. As one of the men looked for valuables, the other kept the couple and a third 50-year-old resident in a downstairs room.

After 45 minutes, the men left through the front door with cash and jewelry worth about $2,000. No one was hurt in the incident.

The suspects are described as two Hispanic men in their early 30s. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Industry Sheriff's Station at (626) 330-3322.
