      Police are investigating whether the disappearance of a 28-year-old Capitol Heights man two weeks ago is linked to an incident later in the same day, when armed assailants stormed into his home, bound the occupants with duct tape and ransacked the residence before fleeing with cash, a laptop and other items.

      Anthony Nelson, a technician who has worked for Verizon for a decade, has not been seen by his family since he left their townhouse about 6 p.m. Aug. 16, telling his mother that he was going out with friends. Five hours later, two gunmen entered the home and restrained Nelson's mother, aunt and half-brother, Calvin Benson. . . .
