When deputies arrived they discovered the home had been ransacked, with most of the activity occurring in the master bedroom. The resident reported that she had been home alone taking a shower. When she exited the shower, two male blacks entered the bathroom. The first suspect grabbed the woman’s phone from her hand and placed his gloved right hand over her mouth. The second suspect pointed a gun at her. The first suspect tied her hands and asked her questions concerning information about a family member. When she refused to answer, the suspect made a phone call to an unknown person. After the phone call, the suspect asked her for more information; she refused to answer.
