TREDYFFRIN TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — Treddyfrin Township police are asking for help as they try to solve a home invasion over the weekend near the Strafford train station, where a woman was bound with duct tape and threatened with a stun-gun by a man wearing a Halloween mask.

Tredyffrin Township police superintendent Anthony Giaimo says they’re looking into a number of tips they’ve received and they’re checking the area for more surveillance video or images.

Giaimo says they’ve also put out a stock photo of the mask that was worn during the crime:

“It’s fairly unique so we’re looking for anyone who may know who possibly owns this mask if it was worn maybe at a Halloween celebration at one point or another.”

The man is seen wearing that mask in surveillance images from an ATM machine at the Devon Square shopping center around 1am on Saturday morning. Police say a woman on Crestline Road by the train station woke up to the man standing over her. He bound her, stole her ATM card and car keys, threatened her to get her PIN number, then stole her car. The car was found at the train station.

Giaimo says call the station, or visit Tredyffrinpd.org to submit tips anonymously.
