Brother and sister tied up in W. Sacramento home invasion

A man was hit with a pool cue in a robbery at his home in West Sacramento Wednesday morning.

West Sacramento police said that the man was sleeping on the couch about 2:30 a.m. at the home in the 3600 block of Cooper Island Road when two men entered through an unlocked sliding glass door at the rear of the house.

One of the intruders grabbed a pool cue, which was used to strike the man. He was then tied up.

The man's sister came downstairs to see what the commotion was about, only to also be tied up by the ski-mask wearing attackers. The robbers took cash and fled the house.

Police have not determined if the home invasion was random or if the victims were targeted.
