Cops: Mom finds daughter bound to chair after burglary

Detectives are investigating an apparent home-invasion burglary in Islip after a woman called 911 Monday night to report she'd just returned home -- and found her 28-year-old daughter duct-taped to a chair, Suffolk County police said.

Police said the 28-year-old suffered minor injuries. It was not immediately clear if she was hospitalized.

Police said the home invasion occurred on North Ocean Avenue and said it was reported in a 911 call at 9:05 p.m., the caller reporting that on arrival at the home she "found her daughter bound with duct tape." Police said the woman told them her daughter had been bound to a chair about two hours earlier.
