ESSEX, Md. (WJZ)– The search is on in Baltimore County for two masked men who forced their way into a home in Essex and duct-taped a man and his two young children.

Police say two armed robbers approached the man and his daughters as they were leaving their home on Bayview Court. They forced the family back inside, bound them with the tape and put them in a closet. Police say the robbers ransacked the home and got away with a safe and the family’s car.

“We do not believe that this was a random crime,” Elise Armacost, spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Police Department, said. “These suspects seem to have knowledge that there was money in this home and they targeted this particular family.”

The family was not hurt.
