Zuleima Zagal told WTHR the back door of her home was kicked in by two masked men with guns who punched her in the face.

"He came to me and punched my face," Zagal told WXIN. "He said, 'Give me all your money and don’t move.'"

Zagal’s three daughters, ages 11, 9 and 8, were in their bedrooms but heard the noises and discovered their mother being attacked.

"When my daughters hear any noises, they come out to my room," Zagal told WTHR reported. "My oldest daughter says ‘You guys you want money, I got the money, but don't do anything to my mom.’”

Zagal suffered a black eye, but the children were not hurt, WXIN reported. The men, who stole Zagal’s wallet, remain at large.
