Lexington family tied up during home invasion

By  | 

The family living on Gatehouse Place in Lexington got quite a scare Tuesday morning starting with a loud knock on the front door of their home.

18-year-old Ramon Sandoval was home when three men broke in just before ten o'clock in the morning. Sandoval says one had a gun and a fake police badge. He says the three men barged in after someone in the home opened the door.

Police say the men then tied up the residents while they rummaged through the home looking for items to steal. Two children were home at the time of the break-in. It took the victims about half an hour to free themselves before they were able to call police.

Sandoval says the men who broke in shouted racial remarks at his family and demanded pain pills he said his mother takes for a back problem. When they didn't find the drugs, they got away with two X-Box's, cell phones, and $500 cash. The men all got away on foot.

Police released a composite sketch Tuesday afternoon of one of the men. He's described as a white men between the age of 18 to 25, about 5'4" to 5'6" and 145 pounds. He had dirty blond hair and blue eyes. The other two men were wearing bandannas. Police say they were either white or Hispanic but the victims couldn't get a good description. One was wearing khaki shorts with a black jacket, the other black pants with a striped polo shirt.

No one was hurt in the break-in.
