A baby sitter taking care of children in Randolph was the victim of an armed home invasion Thursday morning, according to police.

Police said the woman, who is in her 20s, was watching a 3-year-old, 5-year-old, and 17-year-old at a home on Highland Avenue when three men forced themselves into the residence demanding money. They proceeded to tie up the baby sitter and 17-year-old with duct tape and zip ties and ransack the house, police said.

Police described one suspect as a Vietnamese man in his early 20s who was wearing gray sweatpants and a red and white striped shirt at the time of the home invasion. Police described the other two suspects as Hispanic men in their early to mid-20s who have arm tattoos and were wearing white T-shirts and sweatpants.


Randolph police were called to the scene around 9:53 a.m., and no injuries were reported. The only item reported stolen was a gold chain, police said.

In a statement, Randolph Police Chief William Pace said the search continues for the suspects, who were described as an Asian man and two Hispanic men, one of whom was armed with a knife. All of them appeared to be in their 20s, according to police.

Meanwhile, police in the neighboring town of Canton released surveillance video Thursday of the suspects who allegedly broke into a home on Arboretum Way and pistol-whipped an elderly man on Tuesday.

Canton police said two of the suspects were armed, and they fled the scene in a black Chrysler Pacifica. Canton detectives are asking the public to help them identify the suspects and the vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call 781-828-1212 or leave an anonymous tip at www.cantonpolice.com.
