Norfolk, Va. - Tiffany is moving out of her apartment three days after three men barged into her home and put a gun to her head.

"It was clicked to the back so you know they threatened you like with the noise they clicked it once and was like B**** I'll kill you," Tiffany said.

"And at that point you thought it was over?" She was asked.

"Yeah, you never know what they're going to do," Tiffany replied. "You don't know you just go along to save your life."

The robbers put her in zip ties and demanded money.

Tiffany gave them her purse, in it was money from a recently cashed paycheck.
The three men wanted more.

"We're going to shoot you if we don't get the money," Tiffany said. "I know y'all have some money, some money is here."

Monday night's home invasion was just five blocks from where one happened on Thomas Street Tuesday morning.

In that case, police say the burglars were already inside, and then they too zip-tied the victims, and robbed them.

Police at this point are not saying whether the two robberies are connected.

They happened within 14 hours of each other, and were separated by just a handful of blocks.

Once was enough for Tiffany, with her car packed up, she's leaving the neighborhood.

"You're just fearful of whoever at one time you want to say hello to people but not now. It's like you fear everybody," Tiffany said.
