Video from a home security system was released this week and shows the moment a group of five suspects broke into a Houston home last month and terrorized the homeowner.
The homeowner, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he woke up from an afternoon nap to five people in his home.
The suspects tied up the homeowner and stepped on, kicked, and pistol whipped him in the head and even put scissors to his fingers while demanding money. The ordeal went on for 25 minutes and during that time, the homeowner thought he was going to die.
“They began to put a pillow over my head. They had a gun over my head… I made my peace,” said the homeowner, who survived but has since moved out of the home.
The suspects made off with jewelry, designer bags, guns, and other valuables.
Mike Knox, a Houston City Council member and gang expert, said the home was likely targeted and called the operation “sophisticated.”
