I received this update from the VCDL (Virginia citizens defense league)
Man after reading this I got the chills. This is the EXACT scenario that always plays through my head and one of the reasons I have a gun always at the ready. This could have turned MUCH worse. Rape, murdered, house set on fire etc. I've read about these same scenarios with the aforementioned acts taking place.
Just a side note; with the suspects only weighing 140-160 approximately, I guess they couldn't have really harmed the grown man in the house right? I'm basing that off of another individual who has been posted about time and time again on this site as only being a skinny bean pole of a kid.
Anyways, I say NEVER underestimate your opponent and always expect the unexpected.
Here is the story;
Be careful, I have heard that there have been several similar incidents in the surrounding areas of Fredericksburg ! ! !

The Stafford sheriff's office is investigating a home invasion robbery that took place early Monday morning at approximately 12:30 a.m. in the Widewater Village subdivision located in North Stafford. Two suspects forcefully entered the home through a basement window. They awakened the homeowners (husband and wife) while asleep in their upstairs bedroom with their 10 month old baby. One of the suspects was armed with a knife. The suspects ordered the victims to disrobe and then taped their mouths and bound their hands. They were then escorted throughout their home as the suspects stole various items to include cash and jewelry. Once completed, the suspects escorted the victims to their basement where they were further bound and threatened their lives if they left the room. Later, the man and woman were able to free themselves and fled to a nearby neighbor where the Sheriff's Office was notified.
We are seeking the assistance in the apprehension of these suspects who are described as:
Black Males, late teens to early twenties. Both appeared to be about the same size. Approximately 5'6-8" in height, weighing 140-165 pounds. Both were wearing Black sweatshirts, Blue jeans, Black hats and had their faces covered with Blue bandanas.
Items taken from the residence include Rolex watches, Seiko watches, Sony digital camera, Cannon digital camera, several hundred dollars in Japanese Yen and a gold ring.
Sheriff's Detectives are also investigating a burglary to a residence in that same area that occurred within the past 24 hours. Forced entry was also made to this residence through a basement window. That residence was unoccupied at the time of the burglary. Detectives are investigating to determine if the two are related.
