CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A mother and her 11-year-old daughter were terrorized during a home invasion at about 8:30 p.m. Monday along Rozzelles Ferry Road in northwest Charlotte.
Three intruders broke into the victims' home, had guns, threatened them and tied up the mother and daughter.
The robbers stole their cellphones, police said.
The woman’s boyfriend returned home two hours after the break-in and the two were still tied up.
The boyfriend told officers that he operates a CBD business and it’s possible the robbers were looking for cash or they may have thought he had drugs.
“(I) mean, this neighborhood's always been quiet,” neighbor Chris Losch said. “I think that's why people always liked it, before any transition or anything like that. It's been normal city stuff."
A victim said a neighbor saw three men run across a parking lot and get into a gray car after the home invasion.
There have been no arrests.
