A robber hit a woman across the face with a crowbar and then pistol whipped her during a violent home invasion in Mission Valley on Wednesday night, San Diego police said.
The 30-year-old victim was with her boyfriend, 33, in their apartment on Old Quarry Road near Northside Drive when someone knocked on their door about 8:30 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Tansey said.
The boyfriend opened the door and saw two men he knew. The pair quickly forced their way into the apartment.
One of the men started fighting with the boyfriend. The other man dragged the girlfriend into a bedroom, hit her with the crowbar and a silver handgun and began demanding money as he tied her up, Tansey said.
The two invaders bound the boyfriend as well, also demanding he give them cash.
The men then ransacked the apartment and stole a number of personal items from the apartment before fleeing, said Tansey.
The victims, who suffered minor injuries, told police they knew the suspects.
One man was described as white, 30 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 175 lbs. He was wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt. The other man was described as black, 19 to 20 years old, 6 feet 5 inches tall and 230 pounds. He was wearing a white shirt, red pants and gray athletic shoes.
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
