FREMONT -- Masked gunmen tied up a man during a daytime home invasion in the Mission Valley neighborhood this week and made off with cash and jewelry, police said.

The man was able to escape unharmed, police said.

Officers were called at 1:55 p.m. Monday to the 44000 block of Linda Vista Road for a report of a home invasion robbery that had just occurred.

The man told officers that two men approached him outside his home, held him at gunpoint and demanded cash and jewelry, police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said.

The gunmen then took the man into the house, stole several items and tied him up. After the gunmen left, the man was able to free himself and call police, Bosques said.

Police described both man as black, ages 18 to 20 and about 5 feet 10 inches tall. The first man wore a black or gray jacket with a hood and a black ski mask over his face. His accomplice wore a light blue jacket with a hood and a black or gray ski mask over his face.
