    Two men robbed his house last night.

    Two men robbed his house last night.

    Is the above sentence correct? I wonder if a house can be robbed.

    Thanks.

    Re: Two men robbed his house last night.

    The sentence sounds fine.

    Technically, it would be burglary, not robbery. But many natives don't know the difference.
