Posted: November 26, 2012

A 72-year-old man in East Mount Airy was attacked and robbed in his home Friday night by three masked men, police said.

The man, whom NBC10 identified as Stephen Shenk, was home alone on the 2400 block of 76th Avenue when the men broke into his bedroom about 11 p.m. and forced him to the floor, police said.

They tied his hands and feet, gagged him, and went through his pockets, stealing his wallet, cash, and car keys.

The attackers, who were described as approximately 20 years old, then took the man's car, a gray 2005 Toyota Corolla.
