Riverview, Florida -- Christina Weber, 29, told deputies she woke up to the shadowy faces of two or three men hovering over her bed.
The frightening encounter started at around 10 p.m. Thursday and ended shortly after midnight at a house on Tucker Road, just east of U.S. 301 in Riverview.
Weber said the men quickly covered her head, tied her up with rope, and brought her into another room. They then did the same thing to a 13-year-old boy who also lives in the house.
One of the suspects apparently made it clear he had a gun.
The chaos paused, and deputies say the suspects and victims all sat there in the living room for about two hours -- laying in wait.
When the third man who lives here -- Charles Sanders, 60 -- came home, the suspects smashed him in the head with some object and tied him up, just like the other two.
At that point, Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies say the men ransacked the house looking for money.
They took off by stealing the victims' car, a 2002 Chevy Astrovan, according to investigators. The fact that it had no headlights didn't stop the suspects from getting away.
Beyond the getaway car, the limited suspect description that's available may not be of much help to deputies or the public -- the men are described only as white, possibly Hispanic.
One of the victims managed to get untied and call 911 early Friday morning, just after midnight.
Deputies rushed to the neighborhood and set up a perimeter. Units, including a helicopter, searched from the skies. But no one found anything related to the home invasion.
All of the people in the house are ok. Five hours after the incident, Sanders stood in his yard, talking to deputies with a white bandage wrapped around his head.
This home was not randomly picked for a home invasion, detectives say. The people here were targeted by the suspects, but deputies have not explained how they're connected.
