PD: Officers find woman bound in her bed when responding to home break-in call in Phoenix

PHOENIX - Police are searching for a suspect who broke into a South Phoenix home and left a woman restrained early Friday.

Phoenix police Lt. Matt Giordano said a neighbor called 911 to report a possible burglary at the apartment complex near 32nd Street and Chandler Boulevard.

The caller reported seeing a man hiding in the bushes and hearing a neighbor's window being broken around 12:30 a.m.

When officers arrived they found the broken window and when no one answered the door, they got into the apartment through the window to check for a suspect.

That's when they found a woman in her 30s bound and lying in her bed.

Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

The woman was treated at the scene by fire department paramedics but was otherwise uninjured.

Sgt. Steve Martos said the victim was unable to provide information as to what had occurred.

The investigation is still ongoing.
