Rapper A$AP Rocky’s home in Los Angeles was broken into late Tuesday night by armed robbers, the media has learned.

The incident took place around 11:30 p.m. and, according to law enforcement sources, three male suspects knocked on the door to his home.

When an unidentified woman answered, they reportedly brandished firearms and pushed their way into the house, TMZ reports.

The bandits accosted the terrified woman and dragged her throughout the house so she could show them where all the valuables were placed and hidden. In total, the trio made off with about $1.5 million in jewelry and other property.

The men also tried to take a safe but decided to leave it on the sidewalk for some reason before taking off in their getaway vehicle.

The woman is a relative of A$AP Rocky, who was not home at the time. She was not tied up and it appears she was not injured.

The police have no suspects as of press time.

New York born and bred A$AP Rocky, 28, carved out a prosperous career on the streets of Harlem beginning in 2011 after releasing a classic mixtape Live.Love.A$AP in October of 2011 and his debut album under RCA and Long.Live.A$AP in January of 2013. They featured the smash hits “Long Love ASAP,” “Peso,” “Goldie” and “Multiply.” He’s also a prolific featured artist on other rapper’s songs such as Theophilus London’s “Big Spender” and “Hands on the Wheel” starring ScHoolboy Q.
