ATHENS, Ga. -- Police are looking for suspects after an 89-year-old woman was tied up and robbed during a home invasion in Athens.

Athens-Clarke County Police say the crime happened Monday night at the woman's home on the city's east side.

The victim told police the two men barged into her Lexington Road home and claimed to have a gun. They tied her up, took some of her jewelry and fled in a van.

Police are looking for the van, described as a white 15-passenger Dodge van that appears to have been converted into a work truck.

Investigators also obtained surveillance videos from a nearby bank, which they believe show the van around the time of the robbery.
