Man, 92, chews restraining tape after home robbery

SHORELINE, Wash. – The King County Sheriff's office says a 92-year-old Shoreline man chewed through restraints to free himself after two men robbed his house.

Sgt. John Urquhart says that on Monday two men knocked on the victim's door and asked to use his phone, claiming their car broken down. But once they entered, the men grabbed the victim's arms and held them while they used masking tape to tape him to a chair.

Urquhart says the men spent over an hour in the house looking for valuables, eventually darting off with more than $400 in cash and the victim's 2000 Ford pickup truck.

It took the man two hours to chew through the masking tape. Other than bruises, he was not injured.

The suspects are still at large.
