OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - A woman who told police she was tied up Tuesday night during an Overland Park home invasion and robbery wasn’t even home at the time of the break-in, police said Wednesday.
According to a statement from the Overland Park Police Department, the woman said two men came into her home in the 9400 block of Nieman a little before 9 p.m., tied her up and robbed her of money and other items.
But after further investigation, police determined the woman wasn’t even home at the time of the home invasion and a male, who was home, was the actual victim of the robbery.
Police said the man was afraid to talk to police because he had outstanding warrants.
The Overland Park Police Department is still investigating the case as an aggravated robbery.
The suspects were described as white males with heavy builds wearing white t-shirts. One of them had brown hair and the other blonde. One carried a shotgun and the other had a handgun, police said.
