A woman says her grandson and his roommate were tied up by robbers during a home invasion in west Houston.

She called 9-1-1 for help late Wednesday evening from the home on South Parkview drive near Barker Cypress.

One victim says they were tied up by zip ties, then robbed at gunpoint by two men posing as workers for Reliant Energy. The victim says the suspects had a clipboard and knocked on the door, saying they were with Reliant.

When the victims cracked the door open, the men rushed in, held them at gunpoint and then tied them up. The suspects ransacked the apartment and stole electronics and cash before they left.

No one was hurt, but the victims are shaken up.

Houston police are investigating the alleged crime.

No other details were immediately available.
