West Toledo couple on porch attacked, robbed

A West Toledo couple was robbed Sunday after three men forced them into their house at gunpoint and threatened to kill their child, police said.

Jade Garcia, 21, and Chad Burkholder, 24, were smoking cigarettes on their front porch in the 3100 block of Tremainsville Road when the men approached about 10 p.m. Sunday.

The men pulled out pistols and ordered the couple indoors, police said.

Ms. Garcia was thrown to the floor, and her hands were bound with duct tape. The robbers repeatedly threatened to kill her baby if she didn t cooperate, police said.

Mr. Burkholder was ordered to give the men all his money. He gave them about $2,500 and begged them not to hurt his wife or child, the report said. The robbers fled with the cash.
