PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A trip home from a friend's house turned into a nightmare for two Phoenix brothers when they were tied up, robbed at gunpoint and had their vehicles stolen early Thursday morning, police said.

The series of events began when one of the brothers was driving home just before 3 a.m. when he noticed he was being followed, said Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson.

He pulled into his house near Glendale and Seventh avenues when four men jumped out of a vehicle, forced him into the back seat of his gold 1995 Lexus 400 at gunpoint and drove him around to various ATMs, demanding he withdraw money, Thompson said.

They returned to the house, where the brother was taken inside, still at gunpoint. The suspects then awakened the other brother and tied them both up, Thompson said.

The suspects ransacked the home for about a half-hour, taking several undetermined items, and also stole two cars from the house, Thompson said.

The Lexus had Arizona license BAG 7184.

The other vehicle is a silver 2004 Mercedes C230 with Arizona license 695 PWZ.

No injuries were reported.

The suspects were described only as Hispanic.

Phoenix police investigators released several images of one of the suspects caught on camera at a local convenience store.

Anyone with information concerning this incident or knows who the suspects may be is encouraged to contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.
