GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a woman was tied up during a home invasion in the Georgetown area.
 
Police said in a statement that it happened around 1 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Kruger Road. A 24-year-old woman heard a noise in the kitchen area and when she walked out of the bathroom, police say she was confronted by three men.
 
Police say one man armed with a handgun ordered the woman to lie down and her hands were tied behind her back and her head covered.
 
The men ransacked the home before taking some of the woman's jewelry and fleeing. Police say the woman was not hurt.
