They locked me and my husband in our bedroom and went to the kids room, One of my daughters tried to shout, she said she saw a man dressed in all black with flashlight in his mouth, the next thing she suddenly felt drowsy and knocked off. We had to break our door to come out. Thank God the kids are all ok and no one was hurt. They took all our phones (3 phones: My Samsung s9+, my machine is gone, iPhones, 2 laptops, a tablet and made away with all cash we got at home, we found the bags and stuff they searched outside,” he wrote.
