MEDFORD, Ore. -- Medford police are now searching for two robbery suspects after a 75-year-old woman says she was robbed at gun-point and tied up in her own home.

On Sunday, October 27th, 2019, just before 9:00 a.m., Medford Police officers were called to a home invasion and robbery in the 1800 block of Filmore Drive.

A 75-year-old woman says she ran to a neighbor's home after escaping a robbery at her home. Officers arrived within minutes but the two suspects were gone.

According to police, the woman was home alone when she answered a knock on her front door around 8:40 a.m. When she opened the door, two men with their faces covered, forced their way into the home. At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. The suspects tied the women up with zip ties and assaulted her as they demanded access to certain items inside the home.

The suspects stole the woman's wedding ring from her hand, as well as other jewelry from the house.

Once the suspects appeared to be gone, the woman ran to a neighbor's house, still partially bound in zip ties.

Detectives believe this was a targeted robbery and believe that the suspects had knowledge about the home. After searching the neighborhood, police discovered surveillance video of black truck seen arriving shortly before the robbery and leaving shortly after. The picture of the truck is included in this article.

The description of the suspects are limited to two adult males wearing face coverings.

The victim was treated on scene by Mercy Flights Ambulance and later received additional medical treatment. Her injuries included facial, arm and shoulder injuries.

This case is not drug related.
