FW Couple Robbed By Armed Suspects in Clown Masks: Police

Suspects forced woman to bind her husband's hands with duct tape, police say

Police are looking for two suspects who reportedly wore clown masks during a home invasion and robbery on Halloween night.

Police were called to a home in the 1100 block of East Richmond Avenue in Fort Worth just before 8 p.m. Thursday.

Officer Brad Perez with the Fort Worth Police Department said a couple reported two people with clown masks forced their way in through the back of the house.

The suspects forced a woman to bind her husband’s hands with duct tape, Officer Perez said.

One of the suspects was reportedly armed with a knife, while the other had a gun.

"They were asking, where is the money? Where is the money?" Perez said. "I believe there was another individual in the home that was in the bathroom that was told to go in there."

The woman, who did not want to be identified on camera, told NBC5/Telemundo 39 that the ordeal "felt like an eternity".

Tara Moore has lived in the area for about five years. Moore described the incident as 'cruel'.

"I think they wanted to terrorize someone and they picked the two nicest people that live right here," Moore said. "That woman will never forget that. I’m shaking thinking about it. It’s terrifying."

Perez told NBC 5, the suspects stole $1,000 from the couple.

"I know detectives will be looking into this and doing interviews but whether this was a targeted location or whether it was just random will still remain to be seen," he said.

No injuries were reported. 

No arrests have been made as of Friday afternoon. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
