The victim said he heard a knock on his door around 8:50 p.m. He checked the peephole, saw a man he did not know and opened the door. Several other people allegedly joined the man to force their way into the apartment and push the victim face-first onto his couch. The suspects then allegedly tied the victim’s hands with plastic zip ties. The victim said one suspect held a gun to the his head and the rest searched each room for valuables, leaving the apartment with two laptops, two iPods and a cell phone, among other things. The victim’s roommate then came back to the apartment around 9 p.m. A neighbor told police that he had let the suspects into the building after they told him they rang the wrong doorbell.
BUT THEY STARTED IT!
Officers responded to a call about a fight across from the Wonder Bar at 186 Harvard Ave. at 12:05 a.m. April 11. The victim, who police said was extremely intoxicated, alleged that five Korean males hit him unprovoked.
