AN LA mansion belonging to an ex-girlfriend of famed record producer Scott Storch was raided by three armed assailants early Thursday morning who zip-tied two women house-sitting the property.
The frightening incident unfolded at a multi-million dollar home in the 3800 block of Sherwood Place, in the San Fernando Valley, at around 2am this morning.

In a brief statement to The Sun, entrepreneur Florence Mirsky confirmed that she owns the home raided by the burglars, adding that she was “too frantic” to speak further about the matter at this time.
Mirsky is the co-founder of Koko Nuggz, a California-based confectionary company that sells gourmet chocolate products that resemble cannabis buds.
She dated Storch for three years between 2015 and 2018 and shares a child with the eight-time Grammy-winning producer, who has worked with numerous artists, including Drake, Justin Timberlake, and Beyonce.
Records show Storch once owned the property.
Mirsky was not at home at the time of the robbery.
A housekeeper and her friend told police they had been house-sitting for the entrepreneur when they woke up to find three masked men pointing weapons at them, including a rifle and a handgun.
The two women were then bound to the floor and ziptied as the three suspects proceeded to ransack the home.
It’s currently unclear what was taken from the home and how much damage the burglars caused.
Police have, however, confirmed that the housekeeper and her friend’s phones were stolen.
Investigators say there were no visible signs of forced entry and they believe one of the suspects picked a lock to gain entry to the home.
The masked assailants also placed tape over the home’s surveillance cameras, police said.
After the suspects fled the scene, the two victims waited for what they said felt like a long time before summoning help.
As the home doesn’t have a landline, the victims rang the home’s Ring doorbell camera that triggered an alert on Mirsky’s phone.
She then contacted police at 3am, around an hour after the terrifying ordeal began.
SUSPECTS AT LARGE
The two victims were still bound at the wrists when officers arrived at the home.
No arrests have been made and a description of the three suspects was not immediately available.
No serious injuries were reported during the robbery, however, one of the victims was treated for chest pains.
A number of armed burglaries have been recorded in the San Fernando Valley in recent months.
Actor and host Terrence Jenkins narrowly escaped an attempted robbery near his Sherman Oaks home back in November when four armed men tried to steal a car he was riding in at gunpoint.
Dorit Kemsley, a star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was also held at gunpoint during a home invasion robbery in late October at her home in Encino as her children slept upstairs.
The Sun has contacted the Los Angeles Police Department for more information.
