(Bountiful-AP) -- An elderly woman is safe after a terrifying experience in her home over the weekend.
Police say the 78-year old woman answered the door Friday night and a man and a woman showed a gun and entered the home.
The suspects asked for a tour of the woman's home, then they took the woman to her bedroom where they tied her up with a phone cord.
The suspects took cash, credit cards and a D-V-D player.
The woman wasn't hurt. She waited about a half-hour after they left to call police.
The suspects are described as a white male around 24-years-old with a dark complexion and a short, thin female around 21-years old.
