Three suspects, one posing as a police officer, staged a home-invasion robbery in Diamond Bar tonight, at a home shared by a mother, grandmother and three children, a sheriff's sergeant said.
Deputies responded about 8:45 p.m. to the 400 block of Charmingdale Road, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Christina Baker.
"There were three male suspects. One impersonated a police officer. He was dressed in a tactical vest," Baker said."No insignia was seen." She was not sure whether he announced that he was a police officer." The suspects "herded the family into one room and tied up one female," Baker said.
No physical injuries to the victims were reported, according to Baker.
The amount of the loss was not known because crime scene investigators were working in the home first before the family could check for stolen property, Baker said.
"It looks like (the suspects) may have gone through (the house) but it's not ransacked," she said.
