Four armed men entered a house in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles Saturday night. The resident, who was home alone, saw them on a security feed and called police before he was confronted by the invaders. As police surrounded the house, two of the suspects fled, while the remaining two came up with an ingenious scheme: they asked the resident to tie them up, and identify them to the police as fellow victims. The resident agreed, tied them up, and then went to tell the police was happened. Police waited to see what the two would do. Officer Norma Eisenman of the LAPD told the story.
