DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Dayton Police searched for the man they say robbed a woman at gunpoint inside her own home early Monday morning.
The woman told officials someone knocked on her front door, in the 700 block of Keowee Street, some time before 1:30 a.m.
She knew the man and let him inside. That's when she said he pointed a gun at her and told her to lie on the ground.
Officials said the suspect duct taped the woman's wrists together, then stole her TV, cell phone, and some cash out of her purse.
When the man left, the woman was able to get on her feet and run to a neighbor's house to call 911.
Sergeant Clarence West said this about the suspect, "Normally they don't want to get caught, so most people will rob somebody they don't know. Maybe alcohol was involved, or possible drugs or something. Maybe the guy wasn't thinking straight, but robbing someone you know or could identify you is unusual."
The woman wasn't hurt, and she gave police the name and address of the man who robbed her.
We're told the two of them hadn't known each other for very long.
The suspect will likely face aggravated robbery charges.
