Police: woman tied up, threatened with knife during home invasion

Posted: Updated:
NORTH YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police say a woman in North York Borough was threatened with a large knife and tied up while thieves ransacked her apartment Friday afternoon.

Northern York County Regional Police said the 27-year-old woman had just returned from walking her dogs when two men opened the door and entered her apartment on the 1100 block of North George Street.

The men asked where the money was kept and the woman told them she didn't have any. The men then threatened her with a large knife or machete and forced her into the kitchen and onto the ground. They then tied her up using a towel.

Police say this does not appear to be a random crime. They believe the victim's home was directly targeted. 

The  men left the apartment with a cellphone and small amount of cash. The victim fled to a neighbor's home, where the towel was cut off of her wrists and she reported the robbery to police.

Police are looking for two black men, each about five feet eight inches tall, 180 pounds with a muscular build, in relation to the incident. Neither suspect has facial hair, glasses or visible scars or tattoos. The first suspect has dread locks and is armed with a machete.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern York County Regional Police Department at 717-292-3647.
