Springs police are looking for two men who kicked in the door of a 64-year-old woman's home around 1:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Officers say the suspects tied her up, put a pillow over her head and then stole cash, jewelery, electronics and her 2008 Toyota Tacoma.

The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, tells 11 News she was in bed when two men kicked in her door. One of them came into her bedroom and told her not to move.

"He got a flashlight and shined it in my eyes and he threw me on the bed and put a pillow on my face," she said.

Then they tied up her arms and her legs.

"I was just afraid they were going to hurt me," she said.

Terrified they would come back she waited about 30 minutes before she untied herself and called police.

It happened in the 300 block of Ellers Grove near Airport Road and Powers.

Police say the Tacoma is sliver or gray with temporary tags. The first suspect is 20 to 30 years old, 5'10" and weighs about 150 to 160 pounds. The second suspect is 30 to 40 years old, around 5'11" and weighs about 160 to 170 pounds.

    I can only imagine your pain and the feeling of vulnerability at this point. I am sure there are more than enough people in the Springs who would offer free firearms training to you so you may be able to defend yourself in the unfortunate event this happens again.

    As a soldier who just returned to Iraq it worries me that I have to be here for these people and not at home with my family who lives a couple doors down from where this happened.

    Kick down my door at 1am and you will be dead. If these men make a habit of this, it will happen to them. It's a shame the woman didn't have a firearm.

    My suspicion is 2 scuzball dopers who just need to support their habit, and don't have a clue that they could be killed. I can't even imagine that happening to myself or my family. Breaking in the door? I can tell you right now, they'd be dead. It would have been good if the lady was trained, had a firearm, and, "implemented" the "Make My Day Law". They are very lucky that they're still running around out there but as I said, they have no clue!

    SOUNDS ABOUT LIKE MOST OF THE MALES IN THE US FROM 20-30 YEARS OLD. COULD BE ANYONE. WITH THAT DESCRIPTION.
