ISLIP, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Suffolk County police are investigating an apparent home invasion and burglary in Islip.
A woman called 911 around 9 p.m. Monday and told police she arrived at her North Ocean Avenue home and found her 28-year-old daughter bound to a chair with duct tape.
The victim told 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera that the suspect broke into the house around 7 p.m.
She said she came in from her backyard and came face-to-face with the suspect in the hallway.
He then threw her to the ground before tying her up, the victim said.
“He taped my ankles up really tight and then from there slapped a piece of tape on my mouth, rolled me over, tied my wrists together and then tied them to a chair that we had in our kitchen,” said the victim, who suffered minor injuries.
Her mother found her two hours later, Rivera reported.
A television and other valuables were stolen, Rivera reported.
The victim describes the suspect as 6-feet-tall, 180 pounds and possibly Hispanic.
