He told authorities he was confronted by two masked individuals outside of the farmhouse, Sheriff Bill Bergquist said.

The victim said the suspects bound him to a chair in the yard outside and then entered the house. While they were in the house, a car drove by and scared them off. They left the victim tied up, but he eventually managed to free himself and call authorities.

Bergquist said it's not believed to be a random act, and the case remains under investigation.

Nothing appeared to have been taken from the house, he said.
