THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)--"When I realized that they was gone and that we still was alive I didn't care about what they took," said Gary Johnson.

A Thomasville man recalling a harrowing night when he and his wife were held up at gunpoint in their own home.

Victim Gary Johnson says the robbers got away with money, jewelry, and toys they intended to give to children in need.

The victims tell me they are dedicated to helping others and they never thought anyone would take advantage of that or threaten their lives.

"It's a night Gary Johnson will remember for the rest of his life, the night he says bold robbers threatened to kill him and his wife."

"I just told my wife I said I just want you to know whatever happens I love you," said Johnson.

Words he spoke as he and his wife Doris Hill lied helplessly on the floor with guns to their heads, praying for their lives.

"I said get the gun off my wife and the guy with the AK said shut up don't you say another word he said if you say one more word I'm going to blow your brains out," said Gary Johnson.

Johnson says he opened the door of his home in Thomasville after a man frantically rang his door bell. He says the man and two others with ski masks forced their way in, all armed with a handgun, a machine gun and AK 47.

"I said they're going to kill us," said Johnson.

Fortunately Johnson says they took what they wanted and left, money, jewelry and even toys he says were meant for children in need. He is still trying to collect toys for his organizations called the Brotherhood of Love Incorporated so kids will have a brighter Christmas.

"I'm not going to let that stop the Brotherhood of Love from doing what it's supposed to do to help people's in this community," said Johnson.

Thomasville Police are investigating the case but so far no arrests have been made.
