(Scroll down for video) A mother said that she was left traumatized by a robbery after two armed men held her and her daughter at gunpoint.

Melba Orange took her 4-year-old daughter to visit her father, who is the child’s grandfather, in Memphis, Tennessee.

As they were spending time with her father, sister and two family acquaintances, two armed robbers burst into the home at around 7:00 p.m.

The men pointed the gun at the family members, including the 4-year-old girl Zalah, while demanding money.

Orange said that her father had recently sold his home to have money to pay for his wife’s funeral.

According to Orange, the men knew that her father had $12,000 in a bag in his home, which he was planning to use for the funeral.

“They knew exactly what bags to look for, they knew exactly how much money to receive,” Orange said.

She thinks that they might have something to do with the two acquaintances of the family who were with them that night, because they left the home with the gunmen.

Police are investigating the incident, but so far, no arrests have been made.
