Police are searching for suspects after two Chicago women were tied up as their Northwest Side homes were robbed, officials said.

Ed stare was at home watching TV Monday night when his neighbor came over and told him she had just been robbed.

The incident took place just before 8 p.m., in the 3700 block of North Oconto Avenue, police said.

Stare said his 67-year-old neighbor told him two men wearing masks pushed their way into her home when she answered her door. One of them was armed. The stole cash and jewelry.

"They ransacked the house looking for money and whatever they could find," Stare said.

This was the second home invasion on the Northwest Side in the past few days. But police said it is not clear if the two incidents are related.

On Friday, a 40-year-old woman in the 5200 block of North Mobile Avenue told police someone knocked on her door around 11:30 p.m., and when she answered an armed man forced his way inside.

The man got away with jewelry and electronics, and the woman was not injured.

Those who live on on Oconto Avenue say they'll be extra cautious when someone comes to their door.

"I know how to protect myself and I don't answer the door, I look first," said resident Jenelle Wilson.
