After the man rushes in, another man can be seen with his gun drawn running in behind him. Minutes later two other men enter the apartment.

Police said the four men were asking the victim where her money box was and where her boyfriend was.

The victim told police at first she thought it was a prank because her boyfriend was on his way home when it happened but quickly realized the armed men were serious.

The woman said she heard the men yell out, “we got to go hurry up!” as she watched the men leave with a box filled with $3,000 to $4,000.

Neighbors told News 6 they couldn’t believe it.

“It is crazy, and I need to know a little bit more because if I need to move, I’ll move,” said mother Vianna Torres. “That’s not right; they shouldn’t do that.”

“This is my second day [living here] and just to hear that. I’ve got kids too,” Woe Jones said.

Orlando police first shared the startling images on Twitter with the caption:

“WE NEED YOUR HELP: 4 armed men kicked the victim’s door and entered her home demanding money on Nov 7th at an apartment complex on N OBT. Please use discretion as the following video shows a violent home invasion.”

Detectives said they need the public’s help to identify the four armed suspects.

According to police, they left the scene in an unknown vehicle.

“Come forward and give us an idea of who you think that might be and we will investigate any lead that comes in to get those guys all the streets,” Lt. Frank Chisara said from the Orlando Police Department.

Anyone with information is asked to contact OPD by calling 321-235-5300.
