Salisbury Police say Ray and Martha Baker were bound, beaten and robbed in the early morning hours of July 27.
They told police two people entered their Stevens Drive home, pointed a gun at Martha, beat Ray and took some items from the home.
Ray Baker said the doorbell rang at about 2:45 a.m. When he went to answer the door, he noticed the deadbolt was unlocked, but the main door was locked.
When he opened the door, a man told him there was something outside he needed to see. The man punched him in the ribs.
Ray Baker was tied with a plastic zip tie and a towel was placed over his head. Martha Baker’s hands and feet were bound and a cloth was placed over her head.
The man then demanded some hydrocodone.
The two men ransacked the couple’s home and stole money, credit cards, a rifle, a revolver, video games and a video game console. The incident took place over two hours.
