Cape Coral Police are searching for two men they said broke into a home, beat and robbed the owner while dressed as police officers.
It happened just after 7 p.m. Wednesday evening at a house on SW 14th Place in Cape Coral.
Police said the homeowner was sitting in his living room when two men wearing black shirts and hats with "Police" written on them entered his home. They proceeded to strike the man several times in the head, pulled out a gun, and zip tied the man's hands and feet. They said as the homeowner was being tied up, the other robber scoured the house for pain medication.
After about 15 minutes, the two men left through the front door with the homeowner's flip phone, $385 and the victim's gun. Eventually, the homeowner was able to make his way to the kitchen to cut the zip ties from his hands and feet and called the police.
Police added that the victim was checked by EMS on the scene and declined to go to the hospital. A ping from his cell phone was detected on a nearby street, but police were unable to find it.
