SAN DIEGO (KGTV)- Neighbors are shaken up after a home invasion in University City.

“I wouldn’t have expected it because I feel like this area UTC especially is pretty safe,” says neighbor Alana Schnoor.

San Diego police got the call early Monday morning, around 1 a.m, from the home in the 5300 block of Toscana Way.

Two men wearing masks went inside of an unlocked apartment. One of them pointed a gun at the people inside, while the other grabbed phones and laptops.

Police say one of the victims grabbed the gun and fought the robber. The intruder hit the man with the weapon, and both robbers ran out.

“It’s a safe area. I just wouldn’t have expected someone with a gun going into an apartment like that,” said neighbor Amy Kaido.

Police say the intruders were wearing green jackets with black stripes and black pants. Both men were in their 20’s.
