Sheriff Randall Liberty says Stanley Lord awoke early Saturday with a knife at his throat.
Lord says the intruders were wearing ski masks and snowmobile suits.
They tied Lord to a chair, hit him on the head, and demanded money.
Lord is deaf, so the assailants had to write down their demands. He says the intruders ransacked the home while threatening him.
After they left, Lord managed to free himself and drive to a daughter’s home for help.
