You do not know who they are, but they appear to be robbing you, and in fact you become certain of it when you see them stuffing their pockets with your Grandmother's jewelry. You cannot see a firearm or other weapon because their back is turned to you.  Your firearm is on your hip, loaded. They do not notice you are there. You draw your firearm and aim in on them.
