A man and woman were terrorized on Wednesday morning during a home invasion.

Las Vegas police say it happened around 3 a.m. in the 7700 block of Radcliffe Street, which is near East Robindale and Paradise roads.

The man and woman were asleep when they were awakened by four individuals wearing masks and pointing guns at them.

"Wake up b----, he had a gun pointed right at my face, and it just took a moment and I realized this is not a dream," said Whitney Whiteman.  

Whiteman's husband, Gary Howard, was tied up and the four individuals ransacked their home, stealing money and other items.

"He had the gun to my forehead," Howard said. 

"I'm hoping my husband keeps his mouth shut and does not antagonize them or we are going to get our heads blown off," Whiteman said. 

Whiteman says her husband is a Vietnam veteran, someone who is always ready to defend himself and his family. But with four guns pointed at his head as he slept, there was not much Howard could do.

The couple stayed calm and listened to every word the suspects said as the suspects ransacked the house. The second the men left, Howard was able to get free.

The couple was not injured. Police are still looking for the suspects.
