Police are looking for three men with guns who broke into a Madison house early Thursday morning.
A couple was attacked inside a home on Maple Street around 1 a.m.
Frank Cross said he was watching television while his girlfriend was in the shower when the break-in occurred.
"They put me up against the wall, put the gun in my back and told me to stand still while the other one was getting the stuff out," said Cross. "I heard them go into the bathroom get her out of the tub, and put a gun to her head."
Cross, who is a bounty hunter and owns a tree-trimming service, was struck in the back of the head with a pistol and had to be taken to a hospital.
The burglars forced him to open two safes that he keeps his cash, guns and prescription pain medication.
Police said the men fled on foot and later got into a car that was parked in the neighborhood. Cross said the three men drove away in a black Chevy Caprice.
He said he didn't know his attackers but said they seemed to know him and what he had inside his house.
Police do not have any leads in the case, but Cross is offering $1,000 of his own money as a reward.
"I've never had to put a reward out until this right now, and I'm so mad about it," said Cross.
