VIRGINIA BEACH -- Richard and Meme Davis have lived in Princess Anne Plaza for almost 50 years. In all that time, they never had a security system. Now, they do.
"All I was thinking about, okay, we give 'em the money. I know what you're gonna do next; you're probably going to shoot us," recalled Meme Davis.
She and her husband were sitting in their house on Turf Drive Saturday, July 21. Shortly after 8:00 p.m., 2 people with guns rushed into their home, one person going towards her, the other going towards her husband.
"He walked up to me with the but of the gun. Pow! Right side the head," Richard Davis told 13News, pointing out his bruised face and the traces of blood in his left eye caused by ruptured blood vessels. The impact also broke his glasses, knocking them and a hearing aid to the floor.
"It hit me a pretty good licks, so I started up," Davis explained, "and he pushed me back down, said stay."
"They kept saying, 'All we want is your money. All we want is your money,' Meme Davis said.
The people, who had their faces covered except for their eyes, managed to get a little money from the couple. The robbers shot out the door they used to race into the house.
Since the home invasion, the Davises are trying to make sure their doors are locked at all times. They also invested in a security system.
"I did not come back to this house, nighttime, until we got it in," shared Meme Davis, "and every time I wake up, I'm, 'Well, security's on. Hopefully, that'll save me.' Other than that, it'll take awhile -- if I ever get over it. Even dream about it."
The couple and police believe the people live in the area. It's possible they cased the Davises home to know when they'd have an opportunity to hit it.
