A 92-year-old Shoreline man was duped into letting two men in their 20s into his house on Monday, and was robbed and tied to a chair with masking tape, according to the King County Sheriff's Office.

It took the man over an hour to chew through the tape and free himself, said sheriff's spokesman Sgt. John Urquhart. Other than some bruises, the man was not hurt.

Around 11 a.m., the man -- who lives alone in the same house where he's lived for 35 years -- answered a knock at the door, Urquhart said. Two young men told him their car had broken down and asked to use the phone, Urquhart said.
