HOOKSETT - Police are investigating a home invasion where a husband and wife say three people held them at gunpoint and ransacked their home.
Hooksett Police were called around 3 a.m. Thursday. Jim Walker said he and his wife were sleeping when two men and one woman, all dressed in dark clothing, entered their Goonan Road home armed with guns. He said they woke his wife first.
"They got to her first, woke her up with a gun to her head," Walker said.
The suspects allegedly told the couple to stay in their room while they searched the house.
"The woman that was controlling the whole thing was in the hallway with a gun and said if you come out of that room, we'll shoot you," Walker said.
The burglars then allegedly demanded cash, saying they "knew" there was cash in the house. Walker offered up what he had and they eventually took off.
Witnesses described their getaway car as a grey four- door sedan, likely a Honda or Toyota.
Police believe this was an isolated incident and the public is not at risk. Anyone with information regarding the investigation is urged to call Hooksett Police at 624-1560.
Walker said he's glad he and his wife were not injured.
"To do something like that to get a few things, and what they're facing, it's just crazy."
