AMHERST, NY- Amherst police are looking for the three suspects who they say broke into a home and tied up the victim early Thursday morning.
Police say the three black men, wearing dark clothing, broke in through the side entrance of a home on Klein Road in Amherst just after midnight.
Before the men broke in, the victim was home by herself. During the incident, the victim suffered some cuts and bruises.
According to police, the men taped the hands and feet of the 70-year-old female victim, stole about $1,000 in jewelry, and then drove off. Police say the suspects may be driving an older model, maroon colored vehicle.
"It's a horrible crime that happened in our town and we're doing everything in our power to bring them into custody," said assistant chief Charles Cohen of the Amherst Police Department.
