SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash - Shortly before 11 a.m. Monday, neighbors on E. Heroy in Spokane Valley called 911 to report their neighbor had been hog tied by masked gunmen in a home robbery.
The man was tied with wire at the wrists and ankles and hopped out into the street after the two suspects took off in his stolen car. Neighbors helped cut him free as Spokane Valley Police and Spokane County Sheriff's investigators arrived on scene to speak with the victim, who was not physically hurt.
Right now police are on the hunt for the suspects and the stolen truck, described as a 1997 Ford F-350, black with silver stripes, with Washington license plate B40063U. The suspects were wearing black masks and one of them had a gun.
