ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - Police in Rock Hill are looking for three men they say broke into a home, tied up two people with a vacuum cleaner cord and ransacked their home.

The incident was reported early Saturday morning on the 200 block of Cornelius Drive, according to the report from the Rock Hill Police Department.

Officers were flagged down by a 7-year-old girl outside of the residence because her parents were tied up inside.

Police found Sequia Ray, 27, and Darryl Irby, 32, were lying nude in the living room floor bound with a power cord from the vacuum cleaner, according to the report.

Irby was unconscious with a pool of blood beside his head on the floor.

Every room in the home had been torn apart and pieces of insulation from the attic were on the floor.

Ray told police the couple awoke to find three masked men standing in the bedroom door. One of the men had a silver handgun and another man also had one. The third one had a knife of some sort.

The men beat the couple demanding money. They took $1500 from Ray's purse and $3,000 from under the mattress in the bedroom, according to the report.

One of the men said, "We came all the way from New York for this."

The three men then sexually assaulted Ray, she said.

They left in Ray's 1997 green Acura TL.

The car was later found abandoned in an empty lot on Ogden Road.

No arrests have been made in the case.
