An elderly woman is recovering after she was attacked and tied up in northwest Houston. Police say she was taking out the trash Tuesday afternoon at her house on Gallant Forest near Antoine. That's when she was approached by three men. They pushed her inside, ransacked her home and tied her up.

A relative later found the victim. She was roughed up a bit, but she's expected to be OK.
