    Two burglars forced a family to lie down and be rolled up in carpets while the intruders rummaged through the house.

    A Franklin Park family was snug as bugs in a rug while they were being robbed, but they were far from comfortable.

    Last week, two burglars forced a family to lie down and be rolled up in carpets while the intruders rummaged through the house, reports the Sun-Times.

    The two white men, wearing masks and gloves, broke into the Rose Street home through a basement door just before 5 p.m. on March 9, police said.

    "They rolled the occupants up in rugs and told them to stay on the floor," Franklin Park Police Deputy Chief Mike Witz told the Pioneer Press.

    The house inhabitants included at least two children and their mother, according to authorities.

    The burglars explored the house for 45 minutes, reportedly making off with $300, a purse and some jewelry.

    Fortunately, no one was injured.

    Scaring the daylights out of a family for 300 bucks? Heads will roll.
