JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

After getting off work, a Jonesboro woman told police she made a startling discovery.

A woman told police early Monday morning that her roommate at an apartment in the 1300-block of Flint St. was tied up with an electronic cable in the kitchen.

Jonesboro Police Officer Logan Butler said in the incident report the 28-year-old victim who was tied up said she was laying down inside the apartment when she heard a knock at the door.

She went to the door, looked through the window and said she recognized an African-American male wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.

After opening the door and talking with the man, he reportedly "looked to his right and a group of four to five men, one wielding a gun, rushed into the apartment and forced her against a wall."

Butler reports the woman was hit in the head with the gun, ordered to the ground and tied up. Her head was covered with a towel.

The men ransacked the apartment taking several electronics, cash, and other items. The woman told police the men said they were "Bloods" and "G3." They also kept saying "Soo Woo."

Also, the woman said the men asked where the "work" was. She asked what that meant and they indicated drugs.

According to the incident report, the suspect with the gun told the other suspects to leave and that he was going to kill the woman. However, the gunman left as well.

Butler asked the woman tied up why the men were looking for drugs. She stated she believed the men were looking for her roommate's boyfriend who is currently in jail on a drug-related charge.

Police collected evidence and took an inventory of the stolen items.

No arrests have been made in this case at this time.
