    A father and his son were victims of a home invasion robbery in Rancho Penasquitos Wednesday afternoon, according to police.

    Authorities said the robbery happened just before 3 p.m. on the 13000 block of Russet Leaf Lane.

    A 30-year-old man and his two-year-old son were home when two suspects entered the house through a back window, police said.

    According to investigators, the suspects tied up the adult victim, demanded money and ransacked the house before fleeing the scene.

    Police said the suspects put a towel over the victim’s head during the robbery.

    It is unclear where the two-year-old child was during all of this, but police did say the man and his son were not harmed.

    It is unknown whether the suspects were armed. The victim told police he believed the suspects were speaking Spanish during the home invasion.

    One of the suspects is described as a black male in his 20s-30s, 5-feet-8-inches tall with short hair. He was wearing a short-sleeve shirt and dark pants during the home invasion, police said. The second suspect was not seen.
