Intruder ties up resident, steals money, more

YORK -- A York man told authorities that a masked man armed with a shotgun broke into his home around midnight last Thursday, tied him up and stole money, according to a York County Sheriff's Office report.

The assailant, between 20 and 30 years old, is about 6 feet tall, and weighs about 150 pounds, according to the report. He came into the house, forced the man to the floor and tied him up with duct tape, the report states.

The man "tore his cell phone in half, broke his home phone, took his wallet," and took a bag of gold dollar coins, according to the report. The coins are worth $80.

Also stolen were the victim's driver's license, Social Security card and vehicle registration.

There are no suspects.
