Two armed men wearing masks broke into a home in Hilo Monday night, confronted its two occupants and left after stealing an undisclosed amount of money.

Police said the home invasion occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Ainaola Drive in upper Waiakea Uka.

The home’s occupants, a 72-year-old man and his 51-year-old son, were confronted by the intruders who had entered the house through an unlocked door.

The intruders demanded money. After tying up the home’s occupants they began to search the home and, apparently, an adjoining home as well.

Neither of the victims sustained injuries.
