Pennsylvania home invasion victim gets help over Xbox headset

Police say a Pennsylvania man used his Xbox headphones to call for help after being bound with duct tape and menaced with a gun during a home invasion. (Xbox 360)

I don't get it; why couldn't he call the police himself?

There could be any number of situational reasons. The main thing is that he is safe and well.

It said he was bound, did it not? Therefore, tied up.

im guessin from what they said he was already playin so he was prob online wit a friend then they tied him up. so since it might be kinda hard 2 get 2 the phone tied up he just started yellin at his headset til his buddy got the clue what was up.

Ah fair enough, that might explain it.

I don't understand why the thief didn't steal the Xbox. Maybe he's more of a Nintendo or PlayStation man.

Why XBL is better then PSN....

PARTY CHAT/CROSS GAME CHAT.

It could save your life.

His life wasn't in jeopardy unless he potentially suffocated. By the time he got help from XBL the thief had already left in his car.

I'm from Pittsburgh and saw this story and my local news this morning.I think the Guy took his cell phone.and he might of been online and his friend heard the whole thing and called the police.

video games saving the world one person at a time.

his Xbox live was definitely worth 60 a year.

I would not say it saved his life as the robber only left him died up and ran away with the loot.

By then again he could have probably have starved to death if he was tied up and no one came to visit him.

Strange that the thief did not take the Xbox (Insert Xbox joke here)

Lucky the 360 has cross game chat to hit his homies up who were playing something else!

He was probably playing CoD of Battlefield or something so Cross Game chat probably wasn't needed since said buddy was likely in the room.

i hope he was plying GTA IV when this happened.

Man playing GTA IV leads to home invasion! Are your children safe playing games? This story and more coming up at 11.

I am glad he was able to get someone to call the police
Mkai28  +   960d ago
Hmmm, I thought the same thing about why he told his friend to call the police over Xbox live and not him his self. Still duct taped is a possibility, could have took is cell phone.
