(WTOL) - Police want to know who broke into a central Toledo home, tied up three people,  threatened to set them on fire and then robbed them. It happened around 11 p.m. Sunday on the 1200 block of Fernwood.

Police say two people jumped Charles Slaughter when he got home Sunday. The robbers threw a blanket over his head and tied him up with duct tape.

When another person entered Slaughter's house, they tied her up as well, then poured lighter fluid on both of them and demanded to know where to find money. The robbers stole some cash and a Chevy Trailblazer.

As they were leaving, they ran into a 3rd person outside the house. The suspects tied her up and left. She was eventually able to get free and call police.
