CC-Man attacked at home, caught on video

CC TEXT:

"The guy that had me...He was serious. I could see it in his eyes. He was there to do a job, and he was going to do it."
ANTHONY GIROX IS A MAN OF FEW WORDS, BUT THEY'RE TELLING.
"The first thing that went through my mind was I really didn't want my head blown out here on the sidewalk. I didn't want to die that way."
BROAD DAYLIGHT, HE'S AT HIS HOME WITH TWO FRIENDS WHEN THE MEN IN THIS VIDEO ASK IF THEY COULD DO YARD WORK.
HE SAYS NO,
THEY ASK FOR WATER.
HE GOES TO GET IT, AND THAT'S WHEN THE ATTACK STARTED.
"I look up, and he's coming through the gate with a gun."
"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 gonna shoot you.'"
THE MEN WANT CELL PHONES, MONEY, AND JEWELRY.
THEY GET IT, AND THEN SEE THEMSELVES ON A BIG SCREEN T-V -- CAUGHT ON ANTHONY'S SURVEILLANCE CAMERA.
AT THAT MOMENT, ANOTHER FRIEND DRIVES UP AND THE GUYS TAKE OFF.
"It's good to have a surveillance system. Cameras obviously help, and we can keep these guys off the street, cause it's just not right."
"The invaders in this particular case were identified through the video."
DEPUTY TOM PEINE SAYS SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS ARE AFFORDABLE -- ABOUT 80 DOLLARS -- AND A LOT OF FAMILIES HAVE THEM.
"If you take that risk to invade somebody's home, then you may be caught on these cameras, and we'll put it out there, and we'll ask the public for help."
ANTHONY GOT HIS WALLET BACK.
NOW, ALL HE WANTS IS PEACE.
"When the guy shut the door...I thought things were gonna get real bad after that."

--TAG--
Two suspects have been arrested.
Police are still looking for a third man.
