PHOENIX - A Phoenix woman was assaulted, bound to a chair and had her exotic sports car stolen during a home invasion near 12th Street and Chandler Boulevard Wednesday night.
Phoenix police spokesman Tommy Thompson said the 45-year-old woman was home alone when she heard a knock at her door. The woman told police she ignored the knock until she heard someone say they had her daughter.
The woman opened the door to peek out and three men, two with guns, forced their way inside her home. The suspects did not have the woman's daughter.
Police said the suspects bound the woman to a chair and ransacked her home. The suspects stole a number of items including the woman's 2001 Jaguar XJ8.
The woman was able to free herself and run to a neighbor's house for help.
Police are still looking for the Jaguar. It is dark blue, with an Arizona license plate that says POSSBLE.
The first suspect is described as a white male, 16 to 17-years-old, 6 feet tall, thin build, wearing blue jeans, a dark T-shirt, and had a gray T-shirt wrapped around his face.
The second suspect is described as a white male in his late teens, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 160 pounds, with short hair.
The third suspect is said to be 5 feet 11 inches tall, medium build, blonde hair, wearing a black baseball cap with red brim, red T-shirt, and black shorts.
Anyone with information is urged to call the the Phoenix Police Department at (602) 262-6151 or Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS, (480) TESTIGO for Spanish.
