A Philadelphia man was abducted and robbed after he returned from a trip to the casino Sunday morning. I guess the only time you should ever gamble is when you eat at McDonald’s.
Philadelphia police say a man was abducted and tied up inside a basement after he arrived home from a Bensalem, Pennsylvania casino early Sunday morning.
The victim told police he noticed a U-Haul van parked in front of his residence on the 600 block of Adams Avenue in the city’s Crescentville section after he arrived home from Parx Casino around 1 a.m.
The irony here is the neighborhoods which sound really nice are usually war zones. Crescentville, Kensington, Nicetown, Overbrook; they’re all violent areas with shootings nearly every week.
It was not clear if he had been followed. After parking the car, the victim says he was approached by three masked men, at least two were armed. He told police they grabbed him as he made his way inside his home and threw him into the back of the van.
Police say the suspects took the man to an unknown location, tied him up in the basement and demanded information about the money hidden inside his home.
Well, I doubt they picked out a random home late Saturday night and hoped the resident had a great night playing the slots. The thugs obviously followed him home.
