STAMFORD - A Bridgeport man is behind bars after police say he and another man broke into a Stamford home and tied up a 15-year-old boy inside.

The home invasion happened Sunday at a townhouse on Ursula Place.

Police say Robert Marhoffer and another unidentified man went inside and tied up the teen with a dog leash and tied a shirt over his head before stealing thousands of dollars in electronics.

Margoffer is expected to face a judge tomorrow, while police say they are still looking for the second suspect.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 203-977-4417.
