North Carolina Family Tortured With Heated Metal During Burglary

An act of pure torment was described by a local sheriff as the robbery and assault of a North Carolina household of six that occurred last weekend.

Six males allegedly broke into the house of a family in western Harnett County at 2 AM on Saturday, June 15. The family was sitting in their open garage. Harnett County Sheriff’s Office reported that the. Criminals attacked the family and stole many items.

Sheriff Wayne Coats said six individuals bound the family members with duct tape and tortured them by heating metal objects (a knife and fork placed on top of the stove) and then pushing them into their bodies. The individuals were attempting to coerce them into divulging the whereabouts of their funds and firearms. However, no firearms were found in the residence.

The fiends then stole two cars, raided the house, beat the children, and fled in one of the criminals’ silver/gray colored Dodge Challenger.  

The family’s gray Honda Accord has yet to be found.

More than $13,000 has been donated to the family’s GoFundMe, managed by Mayra Morales-Scott, a sister to one of the victims. She said the family was going through an indescribable amount of agony.

According to her account, her sister, brother-in-law, and the small children were attacked by masked intruders. The whole home was searched, and the family is now going through a difficult time emotionally, physically, and psychologically.

Morales-Scott wrote that the purpose of the GoFundMe page is to help pay for medical bills, replace stolen possessions, and give her sister’s family some extra assistance. She asked for prayers, encouraging words, and empathy.

One of the two stolen cars from the home invasion has been found, according to the most recent reports from the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office. But the second car, a gray four-door Honda Accord, is still out on the hunt. While the inquiry continues, the attackers’ whereabouts are unknown. If anybody has any information on the suspects or the mysterious disappearance of the car, they are asked to call the tip line at 910-893-0300 for the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office.
