Arizona home invasion caught on tape

A home invasion of robbers forcing their way into a man's home in Arizona was caught on tape.

The home invasion victim, identified as Anthony Girox, was at home when some men asked him if they could do yard work. He said no. Girox says the suspects then asked him for water.

When Girox entered the house to go get it, the three suspects attacked him.

Surveillance video shows one man grabbing Girox and threatening him with a gun as he forces him back into the home.

"I look up, and he's coming through the gate with a gun," said Girox. "I was caught off guard. He sweeped me up, and he had me in a choke hold, and he was just telling me, 'be quiet. I'm going to shoot you."

The other two suspects then proceeded inside the residence to ransack it. They fled with cell phones, money, and jewelry.

According to Deputy Tom Peine of the Pima County Sheriff's Department, two of the suspects were identified on the surveillance tape and later arrested.

Police are still looking for the third suspect.
