    Police are on the hunt for two men who they say tied up a woman and robbed her during a home invasion in the Oxford Circle section of the city.

    Police say the suspects went to a home on the 1300 block of Van Kirk Street around 1 p.m. on Wednesday. When a 68-year-old woman answered the door, the men told her they had a cell phone that belonged to her grandson, according to investigators.

    The men then allegedly broke into the home and forced the woman upstairs. Police say they tied her up with a cord from an iron and placed her face down on the bed.

    The men then allegedly ransacked her home, stole a TV, iPhone and laptop and then fled the scene. 

    The woman was not seriously hurt during the incident. Police have not yet released a detailed description of the suspects.
