Once at the house, prosecutors said Pollydore and Clark robbed the family of more money and items, and held the male victim, his wife, and their 10-month-old child against their will, KYW-TV reported. The pair allegedly left only once, taking the male victim to “rob him further and inflict additional violence against him,” prosecutors told KYW-TV.

At one point during the weekend, the male victim’s father and a friend came to the house, and were also taken captive by the men, WTXF reported. Philadelphia police told WTXF one of the family members was tortured over the course of the weekend as well, and was treated for injuries at a hospital.

The suspects are accused of threatening to harm the family’s infant child in an attempt to get financial information, prosecutors told KYW-TV.

On the night of Feb. 6, the suspects are accused of driving the male victim to a casino, where they tried to destroy evidence, abandoning him and the car, WPVI reported. Prosecutors said the next day Clark went to a bank and attempted to withdraw money stolen from the family, but a bank teller realized a crime could be in progress, and alerted police, WPVI reported.

Police told WPVI the investigation is ongoing, and they are continuing to search for additional suspects.
