Teen babysitter tied up during home invasion

SAYLER PARK, OH (FOX19) - A teenage babysitter was tied up during a home invasion early Wednesday morning in Sayler Park.

Police say three unknown suspects arrived at a home in the 6500 block of Revere Avenue just after midnight. The suspects grabbed the teenage boy outside the home, drug him inside, and tied him up.

The teen was babysitting his 10-month-old cousin at the time. When the infant's mother came home, one of the suspects struck her in the face with closed fists.

The suspects got away with two cell phone, a purse, a wallet, a drivers license and social security cards. They fled in an unknown direction.

"I came out here it was probably about 12 this morning and police cars were out and people running around, everybody freaking out," said neighbor Jacob McClanahan.

Several residents said this neighborhood doesn't have a history of violence.

"These people are definitely dangerous," said Sgt. Eric Franz with Cincinnati Police. "If anyone has any information we want to know who and where they are so we can get them off the street."

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
