LAPD investigating 2 home invasion robberies

Los Angeles police said today they are investigating two home invasion robberies that netted sizable amounts of cash and jewelry.
At about 2:30 a.m. today, three masked gunmen broke into a Mar Vista home and took a "substantial amount of cash," Officer Marjan Mobasser, an LAPD spokeswoman, said in a telephone interview.
Three female residents were tied up and a man was pistol-whipped in the robbery, she said.
The man was forced to open a safe where the cash was kept, she said.
In Playa del Rey last night, a masked gunman robbed about $400,000 worth of jewelry from a couple who were treated at a hospital, police said.
The robber carried a .25-calibre handgun, Mobasser said.
The robberies are not believed to be connected.
