"They put a bag over her head and they went in for four hours and they bleached everything for fingerprints," the neighbor continued.

It was unknown if the couple was targeted due to living in Bel-Air, a neighborhood known for its wealth.

"They're lovely neighbors and it's unfortunate to hear what's going on," the neighbor added.

As the suspects made their way out of the house, taking with them an unknown amount of valuables, they attempted to destroy any evidence of their crime. Bleach was used to wipe down the home in hopes of removing any identifying forensics.

The neighbor shared that the elderly couple often watched their grandchildren, but they were not present when the break-in took place.

The couple sustained non-life-threatening injuries. They were not taken to the hospital.
