Authorities are currently looking for three suspects after a home invasion and robbery occurred Wednesday night in Ahwatukee.

A 45-year-old woman was alone in her home near 12th Street and East Marketplace, just south of Chandler Boulevard, on Wednesday night when three men invaded her home, tied her up, and “ransacked” her home before taking her 2001 Jaguar, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Around 10:30 p.m. the woman said she heard someone call her name and say they had her daughter, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson, a Phoenix Police Department spokesman.

The woman, whose name was not released, opened the door to three men who then forced their way into the home. Two of the three men were armed with handguns, and none of the men had the woman’s daughter, Thompson said.

The woman was reportedly assaulted and tied to a chair while the men took multiple items from her home before leaving with her car.

Thompson said the woman was able to untie herself and ran to a neighbor’s home for help.

Anyone who may have information about the incident or the suspects is encouraged to call the Phoenix Police Department at (602) 262-6151 or Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS.
