Four men wearing masks and carrying handguns broke into a residence yesterday at 1722 Brussels St, duct-taped several people, and took more than $3,000 in cash and jewelry, police said.
The men kicked in the front door, ordered five victims to the floor, and duct-taped them about 12:15 a.m. Another victim was in a bedroom.
The men demanded money, ransacked the bedroom of one of the victims, Dalina Marinski, 23, and took items from a kitchen cabinet.
After threatening to kill the victims, Ms. Marinski told the men she had $3,000 in between the mattress and box springs of her bed.
The men took two gold chains, 13 rings, and $20 from the victims, then used a cell phone to call for a getaway car, police said.
