Frank Cross talks to FOX 17's Meagan O' Halloran exclusively this morning.
Three armed suspects kicked in the back door of a home on the 400 block of Maple Street at around 12:30 a.m., according to Metro police.
Cross says the suspects pulled his girlfriend from the shower and put a gun to her head. There were also kids home sleeping at the time. They were all uninjured.
The suspects pistol whipped Cross who suffered a laceration to the head. He was transported to Skyline Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. He said he is suffering from a concussion and had to get staples.
The suspects have not been caught. They got away with an undisclosed amount of money and prescription medicine from safes in the house. Cross says he believes this was an inside job and unrelated to his job.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Queen Elizabeth's youngest son, Prince Edward, is visiting Tennessee to promote one of the British royal family's charities, the Duke of Edinburgh's awards.
The prince presided over an awards ceremony at the governor's mansion in Nashville on Thursday for the first batch of young Tennesseans to participate in the leadership and character program.
About 80 youths received the award by participating in community service, skills development, physical fitness and adventurous journeys through the Boy Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs, LEAD Academy, Montgomery Bell Academy or the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Organization.
Following the event, Gov. Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam invited the awardees and their families to tea inside the governor's residence. Later on Thursday, the prince was scheduled to headline a black-tie gala at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.
