LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A 71-year-old woman says she was zip tied in her own home as three men robbed her for hours.

An arrest warrant says Michael Decker, 23, and Nathon Kelso, 23, are two out of three men accused of a June 5 robbery. Police say the men, armed with a handgun, kicked in the back door of a home in the 4800 block of Southside Drive. They restrained the woman by tying her hands and feet with zip ties.

The 71-year-old victim was restrained for two hours while the men removed nearly $4,000 worth of property from her home.

A neighbor contacted police when the victim went to her home after the robbery, still partially restrained.

Decker opened her refrigerator, took a bottle of water and left it at the scene. Police were able to lift prints from the bottle and arrest Decker. Once in custody, he identified the other suspects.
