Three masked men beat, rob Shady Hills couple at home

SHADY HILLS — Three masked men carjacked a woman in her driveway Friday morning, forcing her back into her house, where the trio beat the woman and her boyfriend and stole the couple's money and jewelry, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The agency got the call at 4:37 a.m., said sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll. The crime happened on Lawless Road in Shady Hills.

Doll said the woman left her home to go to work and drove down the long driveway. The masked men stopped her car and made her return to the home. The woman and her boyfriend were beaten and tied up, Doll said.

The suspects fled with cash and jewelry. They might have been driving a dark-colored Dodge pickup truck, Doll said.

The victims, whose names and ages were not released, were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The woman had a broken nose, and the man suffered injuries to his face and a broken tooth, Doll said. The man had been beaten with a belt and pistol-whipped, Doll said.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call the Sheriff's Office's toll-free tip line at 1-800-706-2488.
