Men tie up, threaten teen, adults in Riverview

Posted: Updated:
RIVERVIEW, FL -

Men broke into a home in Riverview late Thursday evening, tied up a 13-year-old boy and two adults, ransacked the house and fled in the victim's van, Hillsborough County deputies said.

According to HCSO report, two or three male suspects broke into the house at 11200 Tucker Road around 10 p.m. Thursday. The intruders tied up the woman, then woke up and tied the teenage boy and waited for the man who lived in the house to come home.

When the man came in, they hit him over the head and restrained him, deputies said. The intruders searched through the house for money and soon left in the victim's 2002 Chevy Astro silver van.

One of the victims got rid of the ties and called 911. Paramedics treated the man for the lacerations on his head. The woman and the teen were not injured.

When deputies arrived, they set up a perimeter trying to look for the suspects, but couldn't locate them.

The suspects remain at large. Deputies said they were wearing dark clothing and masks. They said at least one of the intruders was armed with a handgun.
