EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Snohomish County authorities say an elderly woman interrupted a burglary at her home, leading the intruder to tie her to a toilet.
Snohomish County sheriff's spokeswoman Shari L. Ireton says the incident happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday. The woman was able to free herself after about an hour and then called 911. She was not seriously injured and declined aid.
The suspect stole the woman's 2011 silver Ford Escape.
