WOMAN KIDNAPPED DURING HOME INVASION - An Oak Hill family was terrified after police say two men broke into their home and kidnapped their daughter.

Police say the suspects responsible for the home invasion robbery are still on the run.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Department say the men are considered armed and dangerous.

They barged through the front door, armed with guns.

Police say they bound a couple with duct tape, Daniel Jones, 52, and his wife, Michelle Jones, 45, managed to break free after the intruders left.

The Jones' daughter, Tammy, 22, was also bound with duct tape, wrapped in a blanket and forced into a car, police said.

Upon its closing at 2 a.m., the men returned to Robins' home in Enterprise where gun play ensued, police said.

Robins allegedly took out a gun and fired it multiple times, before Ramsey and Jones disarmed him and hid the gun.
