LAS VEGAS (KTLA) — Two young men dressed as Mormon missionaries were being sought Tuesday in connection with a violent home invasion robbery.

The men were dressed in black pants, white shirts and were carrying backpacks when they approached the home on June 27.

They knocked on the victim’s door and asked to talk about religion, police said.

But about five minutes into the conversation, the homeowner said he was attacked.

“Something went around my neck. A hand went around my mouth, and I screamed for my wife,” Terence Delucia told CNN affiliate KTNV.

His screams woke his wife and daughter. Both reportedly hid in their closets, police said.

The two men took about $3,000 the family had been saving for a trip to Disneyland, along with three iPads and an iPod, KTNV reported.

One suspect was described as White, 22 to 28 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and 130 to 145 pounds.

The second suspect was Black,  22 to 28 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, and 190 to 210 pounds.

CNN contributed to this report.
