A disabled man and his two caretakers were zip-tied while a group of suspects ransacked their Los Angeles home Thursday night, according to police.

A man went out to take out the trash when the suspects allegedly held the man at gunpoint before beating him, then the suspects went inside to tie up the first victim along with his disabled son and the son’s caretakers, KTTV reported.

The suspects ransacked the home before they fled the scene through a backdoor, according to the outlet.

It was not confirmed if anything was stolen from the home, according to KCAL-TV.

One of the victims was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries while the other three victims were treated on the scene, according to the outlet.

Police are still investigating the incident but they claimed that there is no evidence to suggest that the incident was a follow-home robbery.

“We have no evidence to indicate that this is a follow-home, but it is a home invasion and it is disturbing,” LAPD Detective Todd Holmberg said, according to KCAL-TV.
