Woman, daughter tied up, held at gun point
A Destrehan woman and her daughter were tied up and held at gunpoint Monday morning when a group of men robbed their home on Murray Hill Drive, according to police.
Sheriff Greg Champagne said that at about 10 a.m., a black male pretending to need assistance convinced a resident to open the door to her home. He then forced the homeowner back into her residence with a handgun while two other partially-masked black men entered. The three tied up the woman and her daughter and ransacked the home looking for valuables.
Officials say the men are estimated to be 40-50 years old.
Witnesses reported seeing a small four-door grey car in the area driven by a black male.
Police are currently working to investigate the situation and follow-up on leads. If anyone has any information or sees anyone suspiciously casing a neighborhood, police ask that you call 911 immediately. The individuals involved are presumed to be armed and dangerous.
