Two men sought in home-invasion robbery in Arroyo Grande

The Sheriff’s Department is looking for two men who reportedly robbed two brothers at gunpoint last night at their home in rural Arroyo Grande.

The two brothers, who are not being identified, answered the door at their home on the 2300 block of Callender Road around 9 p.m. Sunday when they were confronted by two men wearing bandannas, one of them holding a handgun, according to a news release.

One of the brothers was struck with the handgun, and both were tied up. The robbers stole the brothers’ cell phones and cash, authorities said.

The victims told authorities that they did not recognize the assailants.

One robber was described as a male in his 20s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 190 pounds, with a dark goatee and a bandanna, wearing a beanie, blue jeans and a long-sleeved shirt. The second was described as a male about 6 feet 2 inches tall, wearing a bandanna with blue jeans and a flannel shirt.
