Woman escapes after robber ties her up, ransacks home

Anderson County deputies are looking for a man who broke into a woman's home and tied her up at gunpoint.

It happened around 2:00 Tuesday afternoon at a home on New Henderson Road in Clinton.

The victim told deputies that she was upstairs and heard noises below.  She thought her husband had returned from work, so she called out his name and went to the stairway.  There, a man armed with a gun confronted her and forced her into a bedroom.  He tied her up and told her he wanted jewelry and money.

As the man was searching the house, the woman managed to break loose and run to a neighbor's home for help.  According to the Incident Report, she did receive some minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the anderson county sheriff's department.
