Gunman binds Antioch couple with duct tape in home robbery

Early this morning, a gunman bound a man and his girlfriend with duct tape before forcing his way into their Antioch home and stealing property.

At about 2:20 am, while leaving his home on San Joaquin Avenueto go to work, the victim was approached by a man in his early 20’s armed with a handgun. The attacker allegedly forced the victim back into his house, bound him and his girlfriend with duct tape, and stole several items, including the victim’s vehicle.

As soon as the gunman left, the victim called 911. Police spotted the stolen vehicle moments later, but the suspect fled the scene and managed to escape capture.
