(CNN/WPRI) – A Rhode Island family was the target of a home invasion late Tuesday night in Pawtucket.

A 12-year-old boy, his mother, and his grandmother were bound with duct tape by a trio of suspects, according to Detective Sgt. Timothy Graham.

Graham said the suspects forced their way into the family’s Joan Drive home after posing as pizza delivery drivers. They made off with some electronics.

One of the women managed to free herself and ran to a neighbor’s house for help, Graham said.

Detectives are now working to identify the suspects and figure out why that home was chosen.
