The robbery happened about 1:45 a.m. Saturday in the 2200 block of North Edgemont.

Two men wearing ski masks entered the home through a doggie-door and ransacked the house, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. David Armas said.

The intruders eventually went to a bedroom and dragged one of the victims, a 73-year-old woman, out of her bed and downstairs to the basement, where a safe is located, Armas said.

"It was completely somebody shrouded in black ... they drug me down 15 steps, face first," said the victim, who did not want to be identified.

The woman believes the intruders know her or her husband, who is in his 80s and in home hospice care, because they knew the layout of the property and even brought treats for their dog.

The burglars left with a TV set and some smaller items after the woman was unable to remember the combination to the safe.

The woman suffered cuts to her arms and had bruises on her face and feet.

Police did not have a description of the intruders.
