Women bound with zip ties in home invasion at millionaire influencer’s house

A pair of women housesitting for a millionaire influencer were bound with zip ties at gun point in a terrifying home invasion.

Florence Mirsky's Los Angeles mansion was ransacked by three armed men who knew exactly where to find her safe early on Thursday morning.

The entrepreneur's housekeeper and friend were woken with guns waved in their faces at about 1:30am, before being tied up and stripped of their mobile phones.

Based on the housekeeper's victim report police believe the raid was targeted as potentially part of an inside job.

Misky, 40, who used to share the house with ex-boyfriend and Grammy-winning producer Scott Storch, is offering a $100,000 (£73,000) reward for the capture of the suspects.

She told KTLA: "They went straight to my closet, my housekeeper told me. They knew that my safe was in the closet.

"I’m not mentally OK right now. I have a two-and-a-half-year-old and I can never go back to the house again."

The two victims told police that they were asleep at the home in Sherman Oaks, California when they were forced into zip ties, NYPost reports.

According to KTTV, one of the thugs was armed with a handgun and another with a rifle.

Mirsky co-founded sweets brand Koko Nuggz and owns the plush pad which was previously under her ex's name.

During their relationship which ran from 2015 to 2018, they had a child which Mirsky said makes her even more terrified of returning home.

Producer Scott Storch has eight Grammy awards to his name and a star-studded list of collaborations from Drake to Justin Timberlake and Beyonce, according to the Sun.

Thanks to Ring doorbell technology, Mirsky's housekeeper was able to alert her on the other side of the country in New York.

The businesswoman then reported the home invasion to Los Angeles police at about 3am.

The fact that the men appeared to know where they were going for valuables has led Mirsky to think it was an inside job.

Investigators believe one of the robbers broke into the property by picking a lock.
