NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - A North Little Rock couple says the electricity to their home was cut before they were tied up and robbed by two intruders.
John and Themla Pratt told police they were in their living room when the power went out. Mr. Pratt says he went outside to check the breakers when a man came up behind him and put a gun to his head.
According to the incident report, another man went inside and pointed a gun at Mrs. Pratt, who was on the phone with her sister. The Pratts say they were both tied up and their wallets taken before the intruders fled into the woods behind their house.
A man alerted by Mrs. Pratt's sister told police he saw two men run from the house before finding the couple tied up in the living room.
A K-9 unit was brought in to search the woods but no suspects were found. The investigation is on-going.
