Investigators are still looking for the three men responsible for a home invasion robbery near Chestnut and Teague Avenues in northeast Fresno.
“It was a really bizarre thing,” said Hisham Elhag, the victim of a home invasion robbery.
Hisham Elhag told CBS47 in an exclusive interview that he was lying in bed Wednesday night when he heard two loud noises in the living room.
One was the front door being kicked in and the other was a scream by his 78-year old mother. Three strangers had broken into their house.
“This person was kind of going after her and there wasn't much I could do,” said Elhag.
Hisham, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, was trying to get into his wheelchair when one of the men rushed into his bedroom.
“Where's the money? That's all he wanted to know,” said Elhag.
The intruder searched his dresser, but there was no cash to be found.

“I was saying get the "F" out of here,” said Elhag.
Meanwhile, his mother was battling another one of the suspects. She wound up biting him in the arm.
“Her feistiness comes out I guess when circumstances are stressful,” said Elhag.
All three men, who police say were not carrying weapons, quickly fled. The only thing they stole was the family's 42 inch TV, but for some reason they left it behind on the street.
The television, now covered in police fingerprint powder, is back in their home.
“She's never seen these individuals before, so it's unknown why they ended up picking her house,” said Lt. Jose Garza of the Fresno Police Dept.
A theory is that one of the many caretakers who go in and out of house may have told others that vulnerable people live here.
“It's a sad story and it makes me angry,” said Goharik Arshakyan, a concerned neighbor.
Arshakyan now plans to take more safety precautions.
“We're going to keep the garage doors closed all the time and make sure every door is closed so we are safe,” said Arshkyan.
Hisham plans to set their alarm more often and make sure their security screen door is always locked.
However, this invasion will not cause him to live in fear.
“It happened and there's nothing I could do about it beyond that,” said Elhag.
The suspects are described as tall, thin, black men in their early 20s. Call Fresno Police at (559) 621-7000 if you can help solve this case.
