    Police are searching for three men who tied up a couple and threatened their three children at gunpoint during an early morning home burglary in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. 

    The family says they were all in their beds when the thieves broke into their Anthony Avenue home through a bathroom window around 6 a.m. Wednesday. 

    The suspects bound Maralaisy Gil and her husband Junior Degracia before ransacking the place. They made off with $19,000 in cash from a recent sale of the family's business. 

    Degracia was struck in the face with a gun and stabbed in the thigh during the incident. No one else was harmed.
