A Point Loma woman, tied up during a home invasion robbery, was able to escape and run for help.

Two men wearing bandanas and ski caps knocked on the door of the victim's house just after 2 a.m. Monday, according to San Diego police.

Officers say when the woman asked who it was, the suspects used her son's name. After the woman opened the door, the men forced their way in to the home.

Police say one of the suspects was armed with a hand gun. The suspects were looking for a man who rents a room inside the home.

The woman, who is in her 40s, said the two men tied her up with a phone cord and ransacked her house. The woman was able to escape and ran to a nearby fire station on Catalina Blvd for help.

Investigators say the two men left with several items and have not been seen since.

Officers said they got conflicting information and they're trying to figure out exactly what happened. So far they have not released a detailed description of the suspects. Officers say there may be a drug-connection in this case.
