A couple of friends went through a few terrifying minutes as they were robbed at gun point at a Summerlin park last Wednesday.

Samantha Weller and Arthur Bernao were hanging out on the swings at The Hills Park around 9 p.m. when they say four guys circled around them making small talk.

A few moments later, the friends say the guys pushed Weller to the ground and put a gun to Bernao's head.

"They just kept saying don't scream, don't make any noise," said Weller.

Weller and Bernao gave them everything they had including their wallets, phones, and even keys to Bernao's 2006 white Trail Blazer.

The robbers took off with everything including the SUV.

"It was really scary and we were worried they were going to drive by again or something," said Weller.

Police are checking surveillance cameras from the nearby schools to see if they can get a license plate. As of right now, there are no leads in this case.
