Raleigh family speaks out, says they were targeted for home invasion
A Raleigh family said they were targeted because they own three local Chinese restaurants.
The Wang family said three masked men forced their way into their home, tied them up, beat them and demanded cash.
“They pointed a gun at my head and they said do you want to live or do you want your money?” Mrs. Wang said.
With the help of an interpreter, Mrs. Wang shared the details of her terrifying ordeal. She did not want to provide her full name for this story.
“There was three men rush me and they all have guns,” Mrs. Wang said.
Mrs. Wang said she had a gun and that the intruders wrestled it away.
It happened around 10:30 p.m. Monday at their home on Salamander Court.
“They put multiple zip tips on me and really, really tight,” Jun Wang, Wang’s son said.
Jun Wang said he arrived home second.
Like his mother, his hands and feet were bound and he was dragged into the living room. Then his father came home and he was tied up.
Jun Wang said the thieves referred to their three Chinese restaurants as reason they knew they had cash on hand.
“They were forcing us to open the safe but we haven’t used the safe in years, so we don’t know the combination,” Jun Wang said.
Jun Wang said the robbers hit them repeatedly in their heads and bodies.
He said he had the money he’d made over the last six or seven months.
The robbers stole that along with the cash they had from the restaurants that day.
“They think Chinese people have a custom to keep a lot of cash at home but I want to tell them we don’t do this anymore,” Mrs. Wang said.
The Wang’s said they spoke out with the hope they can prevent this from happening to another family.
