A Yeshiva Road home that two men invaded Tuesday was targeted, police said today.
"Preliminary investigation indicates that this was not a random crime and the home was a planned target," New Castle police said in a statement.
The robbers posed as deliverymen when they went to the home at 12 Yeshiva Road in a gated Hasidic Jewish community around 3:15 p.m. They attacked and bound three people before fleeing when one of the victims freed herself and ran to a neighbor.
The two men remained at large this afternoon, police said. They are described as black males in their 30s. Both were wearing dark jackets and one may have had a beard.
The two may have fled in a white van that was seen parked in the driveway of the home at the time of the intrusion, police said.
A woman at the house told police that she answered her door when man said he had a package to deliver. He then attacked and bound her with duct tape, police said. The second robber then came inside and bound two other people, police said.
The pair fled after one of the women got loose and ran to a nearby house. Police said one woman was taken to a local hospital, where she was treated and released.
Police did not say what, if anything, the suspects got.
Anyone with information is asked to call New Castle police at 914-238-4422.
