TAMPA (AP) - Police say two men burst inside a Tampa home and stole a safe containing a couple's life savings.
Authorities say the intruders were on the front porch about 2:50 a.m. Tuesday when 83-year-old Juan Rodriguez opened the door to leave for work. The suspects knocked Rodriguez and his wife, 81-year-old Osilia Rodriguez to the ground. They bound the husband's hands and feet with duct tape, and then ransacked the house.
Officers say the thieves took a semi-automatic pistol and a small safe with the couple's life savings inside.
The couple sustained cuts and bruises during the attack.
