FAIRBANKS -- Intruders invaded a home west of Fairbanks early Wednesday morning, assaulted and restrained a married couple, then stole items before leaving the home ransacked, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Investigator Sgt. Ron Wall said several assailants entered the house with weapons and threatened the young couple. Their toddler slept through the incident.
''The people were obviously intimidated,'' Wall said. ''We're thankful that someone wasn't hurt.''
After the assailants left, the couple made a 911 call for help, Wall said.
Troopers requested the assistance of state crime lab investigators in combing the scene for evidence, Wall said.
''It's a case we don't encounter,'' Wall said. ''Obviously the propensity of violence and future injury in a case like this is significant.''
