    A man’s Clairemont residence was the target of a home invasion for the second time in just over six months Wednesday night.

    Police said this home invasion happened around 5:20 p.m. on the 4000 block of Raffee Dr. in the Bay Ho area.

    Two male suspects wearing dark clothing and armed with a handgun entered the home through the garage, according to investigators.

    A 67-year-old resident was home at the time. The suspects tied him up and then took off with the victim’s BMW.

    Police said security cameras at the home caught a glimpse of the stolen car as the suspects fled.

    This is the second time the victim’s home has been targeted by burglars.

    Just last November, two men wearing masks broke into the home and beat up the homeowner and his teenage son with aluminum baseball bats.

    Neighbors said the victim had barely finished his rehabilitation stemming from that first home invasion and was starting to mentally recover.

    According to neighbors, the victim had taken extra precautions since the November robbery and installed surveillance cameras around his home.

    Police said they’re unsure at this point if the two home invasion robberies are related.

    The victim operates a computer repair business called Solex Micro out of his home, according to police.

    At this time, police don’t know if the man’s line of work has anything to do with the motive for the violent crimes.
