There was a home invasion on Wednesday night in the south where an elderly resident came under attack.  According to police, three men, armed with a shotgun, entered a house at mile nineteen on the Placencia Road where they tied up the occupants, including a ninety-year old woman, and stole a computer and a vehicle. The vehicle was later discovered abandoned in the Placencia area. Hilberto Romero of the National Crimes Investigation Branch tells us more about this aggravated burglary.
