CHATTANOOGA. (WRCB)-- 15 year-old Elizabeth Pedro was at home with her younger sister and cousin last night around 7 o'clock when two men busted through her backdoor at her home on E. 27th Street.

Pedro granted her first interview to Channel 3 and says she was inside her home when two males came in and asked for money.

She didn't have any money so they took a computer, cell phone and a suitcase full of clothes.

Elizabeth says her mother was at work when the suspects came in the house and the family dogs didn't alert the young girls of the danger.

The 15-year-old was at home with the other two girls when the two men threatened them. One suspect was carrying a gun and the other a stick.

"They say no move, no you move or I kill you", says Pedro.

Chattanooga Police Officer Rebecca Royval tells Channel 3 Eyewitness News Elizabeth did the right thing.

"Cooperate is the best thing to do. If you try to fight, you could find yourself or your family getting hurt", says Officer Royval.

The Pedro family wasn't injured during the home invasion, just shaken.

All the girls hope the suspects are caught soon.
