After handing over $2,800 in cash, Ruiz and his wife were tied up in the bedroom. He told the news station the intruder bound his hands and legs with duct tape and placed tape over his mouth before leaving the home.
Ruiz then crawled into the kitchen to press the panic button on his home security system. By the time police arrived, the robber was gone.
“I’m good because I’m still here. Nothing happened between me and my wife,” Ruiz told Channel 2.
The robbery is still under investigation.
