Richmond homeowner describes waking up to masked men, Marla Carter reports.

RICHMOND (KTRK) -- A family is left shaken after seven suspects broke into their home, tied up a man and held a gun to their heads.

The incident happened last week at a neighborhood near Bellfort Boulevard and FM 1464. ABC13 spoke to the woman who was in bed next to her son when she had a frightening experience.

"I woke up with a flash light in my face, so I'm just like in my head, 'Oh my God!' And I'm just thinking how did that person get into my room," she said.

The woman did not want to be identified since the suspects are still out there. She's sharing her story in hopes that it helps catch the suspects.

Surveillance video shows the men break into the back of her home. Then you see them walking through the home. The video even captures the woman walking with her hands up as she's held at gunpoint.

"I just told them please don't hurt my family. Take whatever you want to take," she said.

She said the crooks tied up her husband and terrorized her family.

Her son is still afraid the men will come back. The seven suspects are described as Hispanic men.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office believes the house may have been targeted.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered.
