Mother of credit union boss describes home invasion threats

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — The mother of a credit union executive who police say was ordered to withdraw money while what appeared to be a bomb was attached to him says she found her son lying face down in the garage in their Bristol home with his hands tied behind his back.

Valerie Yussman told police she and her son were taken into the house at gunpoint.

The Hartford Courant reports that the search warrant was unsealed Tuesday. Police took Matthew Yussman’s cell phone, a suitcase and other items.

The Record-Journal has reported that according to a warrant, Valerie Yussman overheard the two assailants saying they owed money to people “and if they do not pay, they would be killed.”

The warrants say police determined the explosive devices were fake. The suspects remain at large.
