Police: Thieves tie up Buchanan dad, demand cash

Police say four men broke into a Tate Avenue home tonight, tied up a father and demanded cash at gunpoint.

According to authorities, the men, who were armed with a handgun and shotgun, stormed into the Buchanan apartment just after 8 p.m. and tied up the father while his 3-month-old daughter was in the apartment. The man and baby were uninjured, but the thieves made off with some cash, police say.

Detectives are investigating if the family was targeted. Residents in the area say the neighborhood is normally quiet and well-lit.
