Man, 92, chews through tape after Wash. robbery

SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) - December 28, 2010

King County sheriff's Sgt. John Urquhart says two men knocked on the victim's door in Shoreline on Monday and asked to use his phone, claiming their car broken down. But once they entered, the men grabbed the victim's arms and taped him to a chair.

Urquhart says the men spent more than an hour in the home looking for valuables, eventually darting off with more than $400 in cash and the victim's 2000 Ford pickup truck.

It took the man two hours to chew through his restraints, but other than bruises, he was not injured.

The robbers are still at large.
