ELK GROVE, CA - An Elk Grove man spent over 12 hours tied up inside his Elk Grove home Tuesday after home invasion robbers broke in, bound the victim and made off with his Corvette, an Elk Grove police spokesman said.

The attack happened at the home on the 8700 block of Agave Way in Elk Grove around 7 a.m. Tuesday, Elk Grove police spokesman Chris Trim said.

According to investigators, the 58-year-old victim was in a back room of his home when two armed men snuck inside and grabbed him, Trim said.

"They may be African-American, no further suspect discription. One of them possibly may be wearing a white and blue Polo shirt...and driving a very recognizable vehicle. Something that's very flashy and something that's very recognizable to the community," Trim said, referring to the 2005, white Corvette.

The suspects tied up the man, then left him in the back of the house while they fled the neighborhood in the victim's Chevy Corvette with two of his flat screen TVs.

Trim said the man was stuck inside the house for over 12 hours when a neighbor heard the man's calls for help around 8:45 p.m. and called police. The victim was not hurt during the attack.

Investigators were still searching for the car, a white 2005 Corvette with red interior and the California license plate number 5NKJ166.
