GRANDVIEW, Mo. - A family is urging anyone with information about a home invasion in Grandview to come forward. They say four people were tortured, burned, and one woman raped for several hours all while a 2-year-old child was in the home.
One family member told 41 Action News the men inside were zip-tied up. Pillowcases were put over their heads, and they were burned from head to toe. The torture went on for more than three hours.
"This is something you see on TV; something that's not real, that's a movie," Pamela Sims said, describing the horrific details of a home invasion at her sister's home.
Sims described, "They heard someone coming in from the back bedroom window. My nephew jumped up, and they came out with guns; they had guns all at them."
The masked suspects broke into the home at 2 a.m. and stayed for more than three and one-half hours, torturing the four people inside.
