Evanston police are investigating an apparent home invasion this morning in which a man and woman were pushed the floor and duct-taped by three men who took four pieces of artwork valued at between $100,000 and $200,000.
Three men approached the couple’s home in the 2200 block of Central Street at about 8:40 a.m., stating they had a delivery for the male resident, 67, according to police.
The three men kicked the man in the chest, pushed his 68-year-old wife to the floor, and duct-taped both of their hands, police said. They then took four pieces of artwork: an oil painting made in the 1950s, a print of a crucifixion made by the same artist, and two other prints, police said.
