Milpitas police are investigating a home-invasion robbery involving up to five suspects on the same street where the city's mayor lives.
Officers at 9:25 a.m. Monday responded to a report of a home-invasion robbery on the 800 block of Canada Drive.
When police arrived on scene they were able to make contact with the victim, a woman who was home alone. The woman was not injured in the incident, police said.
Police said one of the suspects was armed with a handgun.
The suspects, who stole an undisclosed amount of property from the woman, fled the area before officers arrived.
A source tells NBC Bay Area the suspects knocked on the woman's door and identified themselves as as a UPS delivery man. The suspects then forced entry into the home, tied the woman up and then stole items from the residence.
Police on Wednesday would not confirm that report.
The incident has put neighbors on alert.
"It's something I thought would never happen here," Jerry Chen said. "This is a really good neighborhood. I was very shocked to get the call."
Milpitas Mayor Jose Esteves also lives on Canada Drive. The mayor said he is aware of the crime and is confident police will catch the suspects.
Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Milpitas Police Department at 408-586-2400.
