Intruder flees scene after break-in

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - A Boardman woman told police she was tied up and held at knifepoint by an intruder at her home in The Glen.

Police brought in a dog to search the Oak Knoll neighborhood after the woman says she discovered a stranger inside her home Thursday morning.

The woman says the intruder had a knife and used his shoelace to tie her hands.

However the suspect fled, after finding the woman's husband upstairs.

"The suspect did leave a shoe string behind that he brought with him to apparently tie somebody up. So we should have his DNA. It will take several weeks to get that, Hopefully it will come back from the crime lab," said Boardman Police Detective Glen Riddle.

The victims were not hurt and they couldn't describe the suspect to investigators.
