AMARILLO -- Amarillo Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two men who broke into a woman's home, robbed, beat and tied her up.

Amarillo Police officers were called to a home on Prestwick lane, about 8pm on March 4th, were they found a broken window, where burglers had forced their way into the home.
