BATON ROUGE- Police are looking for two men, accused of robbing an elderly woman in her own home.

Detectives say one man duct-taped the 72-year-old's mouth while another ransacked the house on Carolina Street around 4 a.m. Wednesday.

The woman says the masked men took off after they found some cash.

While police search for the thieves, neighbors tell News 2 they don't understand why this happened.

Jehad Mustafah says, "It really moves me. It brings tears to my eyes. It destroys my peace of mind. It changes me all around, it really does."

Lieutenant Don Kelly says, "When the victim is older as this lady is, 72 years old, yes it's that much worse."

Baton Rouge Police say if you know anything about what happened, call 225- 389-3824.
