Father, daughter terrorized during Union City home invasion

Police say two armed men made their way into a Union City apartment tonight as a father and his young daughter were entering.

Police say shots were fired, but no one was hit. However, the father was pistol-whipped and both victims were found outside on John F. Kennedy Boulevard next to a bus stop, with duct tape on their mouths.

Witnesses say the father was bleeding profusely from head wounds and the little girl screamed and cried.

Police are not discussing possible motives for the attack, but they say the little girl is less than 10 years old and was badly shaken by what happened.

The father's injuries are non-life threatening. No arrests have been made, but multiple agencies are looking for the two suspects.
