SAN LEANDRO -- A man was tied up and blindfolded while two men robbed his home Wednesday, police said.

Around 2:20 p.m., San Leandro police responded to a call of a home-invasion robbery in the 1100 block of Donovan Drive.

The victim told police that two men, one armed with a handgun, forced themselves into his house.

The victim was blindfolded and sprayed with a pepper spray-type chemical while his home was ransacked, police said. After the suspects fled, the man was able to free himself and notify a neighbor, who called police.

It is unknown what was taken from the home, and the man did not need medical attention, police said. Police did not have a complete description of either suspect.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 510-577-3230 or leave an anonymous tip at 510-577-3278.
