GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies are trying to find three men who stormed a house on South Fairfield Road early Wednesday morning.

Deputies said the men were armed with guns when they kicked in the door just before 4 a.m. and handcuffed two adults inside the home.

FOX Carolina spoke with the victim, who said about 4 a.m. the masked men banged on his front door then barged inside where they pistol-whipped him while asking for money.

The victim said the intruders handcuffed him and his wife after taking their money before they ran away all while their 9-month-old baby was inside the home. He said he had to run next door, still handcuffed, to get help.

"I thought they were gonna kill me; I said please don't kill me," the man said.

Cash and jewelry was taken, but no one was seriously hurt, according to deputies.

No description of the gunmen has been released.
