DIXON, Calif. - Dixon police are searching for two robbers who broke into a home and tied up the resident around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The men were armed with handguns when they confronted the victim at the front door and forced their way into the home in the 1000 block of Newgate Way, police said. They then tied up the victim with duct tape, stole some items and then left the scene.

Investigators said the victim was somehow able to free himself and call 911.

The victim's neighbors as still shaken up about the robbery.

"Makes me not want to answer my door, but I don't know," neighbor Francine Deal said.

"What can you do? You're in your house, middle of the day, or middle of the morning, and somebody just knocks on the door or just rushes into your home, there's nothing you can do," neighbor Ricardo Carrillo said.

Now, neighbors are on heightened alert, but it isn't clear what more -- if anything -- they can do to protect themselves.

"I'm just surprised. There's kids always riding their bikes up and down here," Deal added. "We've never had any problems. I've been here since October, and it's always been quiet, never got harassed, never any incidents, nothing."

For now investigators only have a limited description of the suspects. Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call the Dixon Police Department at 707-678-7080.
