For the second time in less than 10 days, a 75-year-old Constantine man was forcibly restrained while his residence was burglarized.
Constantine Police Chief Jim Bedell said three men in the early morning hours of May 6 forced their way into a residence in the Whispering Pines neighborhood and tortured the man with second-degree burns on his legs and back. The suspects demanded to know the location of valuables inside his residence.
Two suspects had duct-taped the man to a chair April 28 and stolen a significant amount of cash and old coins, Bedell said.
In both cases, the suspects wore masks, gloves and had displayed handguns.
