ORINDA -- Sleeping Orinda residents awoke to masked men with guns in a home invasion robbery early Wednesday, authorities said.

The three residents were asleep at about 1:40 a.m. when two suspects entered the home on La Espiral Road, said Jimmy Lee, a spokesman for the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office.

The robbers woke up the victims, pistol-whipped two of them and left with goods, Lee said. Authorities did not say what was taken from the home. No arrests have been made.

The sheriff's office is investigating whether the suspects knew the victims or were familiar with the home.

It appears the robbers walked in through an unlocked front door.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the Orinda Police Department at 925-254-6820.
