Two suspects were arrested, one last night, and one this morning, following a police investigation into a case where a mother and daughter were held hostage and robbed in their home in New Taipei City Wednesday evening.
At around 5:40pm Wednesday, January 2, a 50-year-old woman named Huang returned to her residence in Shulin District, and was ambushed by two men as she entered the apartment. The men tied Huang up, wrapped a quilt around her head, and held her hostage in the bedroom while they ransacked the house for cash and valuables.
At around 7:00pm, Lee’s 23-year-old daughter returned home and was also tied up and held hostage in a bathroom.
During their ordeal, the burglars communicated to the women by typing on cellphones, and did not speak at all. [FULL STORY]
