    "They had us lied own on the kitchen floor and asked us where the money and cash was," said the daughter. "They questioned my mom separately because apparently she was the only one who knew the safe account. They tied our hands, our feet and they gagged us. Later they carried and dragged us to the basement."

    The suspects ransacked the house and got away with a substantial amount of cash, according to investigators.

    The victims were able to break free of their restraints and call police around 1:30 a.m. on Thursday. They were not seriously injured.
