STUDIO CITY, Calif. — Here’s the story — about a burglary!

The house seen in the popular 1970s sitcom “The Brady Brunch” was broken into Wednesday, police said.

Police responded to a call of a break-in at 11222 Dilling St. around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The homeowner told police that she confronted two men in her house who had broken in, officials said. The duo fled the house in an unknown direction.

The woman was not injured.

TMZ reported that the two men got into the house through a sliding glass door and ransacked the main floor. It wasn’t clear whether anything was stolen.

The California house was used for exterior shots for “The Brady Bunch,”  which ran on ABC from 1969 to 1974, and became an international sensation after entering syndication in 1975. The reruns remain popular to this day.

The house, built in 1959, has become a popular tourist attraction, and its location is designated by name on Google Maps. The house has been modified a bit since the 1970s, perhaps to discourage unwanted attention. Those changes include a white fence and trees that now cover part of the facade.

“Brady Bunch” creator Sherwood Schwartz chose the location in part because it seemed like the kind of house suburban architect Mike Brady and his family would call home.

The interior of the home bears no resemblance to the house shown on television, which was created on a set at Paramount Studios.
