A group of people broke into a luxury home on Jl. Kramat II in Karawaci, Tangerang, on Sunday and locked the house’s occupant, a 45-year old disabled man named Cucu, up in a bathroom.

Cucu’s family found him in a weak condition on Sunday afternoon with his hands tied and mouth gagged in the bathroom. He was rushed to the hospital.

Karawaci Police chief Munir Yaji said police were hunting down the perpetrators, estimated to be five persons.

He added that the burglars had entered the house after breaking the front door.

“The victim was in his bedroom when the perpetrators came and clamped him,” Munir said as quoted by kompas.com.

The burglars made off with Cucu’s cell phone, money and ring. (vny/wit)
