Family terrorized by armed robbers

Chesterfield,  VA (WWBT) - Chesterfield police are on the hunt for two men who broke into a Chesterfield home and terrorized an entire family.

Police say it happened just before 9:00pm Wednesday night on Parkdale Road.

A mother, one of the victims, tells us she can still hear the voices of the men who threatened her family. She says she knows they know where she lives and who they are, because they stole their IDs.

She said what happened that night was horrific- that two men barged into the home and forced five people to the ground, including a 5-year-old girl and a baby.

She says one of the intruders held a gun to her 5-year-old step-daughter's stomach, neck, and head. She says he put two guns to her and tried to break her neck, holding her down with the heal of his boot.

She says they were asking for money and guns.

One neighbor, who asked us to hide her identity said,  "They searched the house. They started flipping the sofas upside down glass everywhere and they just said…where's the money? where is the money? Where's the guns? We know you got it. Where is it?"

 "They come in and an they were pretty hard," added Aaron Brown who lives next door. "They grabbed the one kid by the arm, then once they found out that they found out they weren't getting a bunch of money they started saying we ought to shoot up the place and whatnot. "

At one point, they forced two adult men in the home to strip down and lie on the floor while the gunmen pulled apart the apartment...stealing guns, money, TVs, and just about anything else they could get away with.

The victim told us that the men told them to stay on the floor and not move until they had escaped.

She told our cameras, she thinks one of the intruders may have been someone who did business with the father living in the home.

The first suspect is a stocky black male with a mole on the right side of his face. he was wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt, dark jeans, and boots. 

The second suspect is also a black male, but he has a muscular build and wore a black shirt with a blue design, a baby blue hat, blue jeans, and Chuck Taylor shoes. He also had tattoos on at least one arm.

Call police if you know anything.
