PAWTUCKET, RI (WPRI/CNN) - Police are investigating a violent home invasion that has a Rhode Island neighborhood on edge.

A boy, 12, his mother and his grandmother were tied up. The suspects stole several items.

One of the women managed to get free and go to neighbors for help.  The crime is under investigation, WPRI reported.
