MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Mid-South family was robbed at gunpoint at their Hickory Hill home in the 5400 block of Apple Blossom Drive January 29, 2015.

The victims, who wish to remain unidentified, say they were followed home after cashing a tax return check and buying a TV.

Surveillance video from where the victims bought the TV showed three suspects watching and following the family. 

After following them home, one of suspects reportedly ambushed the victims and drove off in a black Dodge Avenger. 

“He put a gun to a 7-year-old's face and told her b**** go to the back,” one of the victims said.

The suspects got away with a 50-inch TV and $4,000.

Neighbors say break-ins are common in the area. The family hopes other residents are able to recognize the suspect or his car, so they can get their belongings and peace of mind back.

Police are asking anyone with information, to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH (2274), text 'AWARD' to 274637 or visit www.528cash.org.
