The father of the home, who didn't want to be identified, told NBC Bay Area that his family had been tied up with electrical tape since about 2 a.m. Monday. The trio of armed robbers, who covered their faces, told the family to get down on the ground, after they broke in through a window, police said.

The family members were able to free themselves from the electrical tape about 3 a.m. and call police from their Sloat Boulevard home.

Police said the armed robbers broke in through a window.

No one was physically harmed. The family included a father, mother, grandmother and two adult children.
