Two men broke into a home in Bel Air Estates this morning, tied up a man, threatened his wife and made off with two motorcycles. The robbery happened this morning around 4:30 am at a home above Sunset and Sepulveda, according to City News Service.

"Two males kicked open the victim's front door," LAPD said in a report. "The husband and his wife were awakened by the noise."

When the husband went to see what was happening, robbers tied him up and threatened his wife. The robbers fled with two vintage motorcycles worth $1.5 million.
