The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has received a number of tips about possible suspects in a Bothell home-invasion robbery, but no arrests have been made.

The robbery occurred last Friday in the 4000 block of 180th Street Southeast in the Snohomish County section of Bothell when a woman and a man armed with a handgun demanded money from the resident. The man said he was holding members of the victim’s family hostage.

The victim then was locked in a utility closet in a garage, where she was found several hours later by an employee of hers. She was unharmed.

The robbers were described as a white male and female, both 25 to 30 years old. They were driving a newer, black four-door Nissan sedan with no license plates.
