    Man found bound, duct taped in South Philadelphia

    It was nearly 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning when a 20-year-old Frankford man was approached as he walked towards his house. Philly.com reports, it was then that a group of men grabbed him and forced him inside his home.

    The men stole $3,000, wrapped the victim’s head in duct tape, hand cuffed him, put him in a vehicle and drove to 24th and Bainbridge streets where they left him. The man was found screaming, bound and covered in duct tape.

    Police have no description of the men, other than that there were possibly up to five black males, about 6-feet-tall, with bandannas covering their faces.
