Two people got a rude awaken early this morning, when a pair of masked men broke into their home, demanding money.
Pitt County sheriff deputies say it happened just after 3:00 a.m. on Reggie Court, that's off of Pactolus Highway.
Authorities say the homeowners were asleep on the couch, when the masked men, carrying handguns, said they would kill the victims if they didn't to hand over the money.
In the end, the duo got away with no cash, but only a cell phone.
