A search is underway for four armed suspects in a home-invasion robbery in Highland early Friday morning.

Authorities say the masked suspects went into the unlocked home in the 5900 block of Arden Avenue at about 2:30 a.m. They threatened to kill a woman in her 50s and her son, a man in his 20s.

Deputies say the suspects duct-taped the victims and then ransacked the home for about an hour. They took jewelry, clothing, shoes, cellphones, wallets and money.

The suspects may have fled in a silver or black SUV. Anyone with information is urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at (800) 78-CRIME.
