According to the report, police say the robbers knocked on the door of a Mill Run home in the middle of the day. When the 67-year-old homeowner didn't answer, the thieves smashed the back door, the report said.
When the homeowner confronted them, they overpowered him and tied him down with telephone cord, the report said. The quartet then allegedly ransacked the home and fled, the report said.
The homeowner was able to free himself and call police with a description of the four people and their car, the report said.
Cops pulled the car over on Route 4 where they say two of the thieves fled, the report said. One ran across Route 4 and a police officer and a civilian chased and apprehended him, the report said.
All four were apprehended by police, but have not yet been identified, the report said.
