RAEFORD, N.C. — Two men thought to be gang members beat a Raeford man and threatened his wife and daughter during a home invasion Sunday afternoon, Raeford police Chief Michael Dummett said Monday.

Two men wearing red knit hats, red bandannas over their faces and white T-shirts forced their way into the home in the 400 block of North Wright Avenue, Dummett said.

They pushed Billie Sue Frye to the floor and put a gun in the mouth of Frye's 3-year-old daughter. The men hit and kicked David Frye when he tried to get between the attackers and his family, Dummett said.

Police believe the men know the Fryes' 17-year-old son.

They took six shotguns, a rifle, credit and debit cards and keys from the home and threatened to return and kill the family if they called police, Dummett said.
