Surveillance video captures suspects attacking man in his bed.
Three masked robbers broke into a Texas man's home attacking him in bed and it's all captured on video.
The crooks are still on the loose, but deputies hope someone will recognize the culprits and turn them in.
It all starts with a kick at a side door at 3:33 AM last Monday in the small rural community of Al Vord.
Suddenly three masked men rush in, one after the other.
They head straight for the bedroom where the victim is asleep, only his 2 dogs are fully alert.
Sheriff David Walker of Wise County, Texas says, "I don't think they planned on the victim fighting back and that probably spooked them."
One of the men tries to subdue the startled victim, who begins to wage the fight of his life. The would be thief begin pummels the man in his own bed.
The victim, legs and arms flailing frantically, tries to fight off the attacker.
The terrifying attack is mostly off screen by now , but the victim continues to struggle arms and legs thrashing. You see the feathers from the bed pillows flying. The ordeal lasts less than 20 seconds total.
When the men finally retreat, the first intruders mask has been ripped from his face, as he runs away he glances unknowingly into a camera the homeowner has installed just in case of a break in or theft.
"Those three guys had picked the wrong house, went into someone's home who actually had a firearm close by it very well could have been lights out for those three gentlemen," says Sheriff David Walker of Wise County, Texas.
Instead, a camera shines a light on a crime that police believe they'll be able to solve.
