MILLEDGEVILLE — Men brandishing weapons break into to residence
From staff reports
Two men reportedly entered a woman's home last week, brandishing pistols and demanding money, according to an incident report from the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office.
A sheriff’s deputy responded in the 100 block of Russell Drive around 4:45 a.m. April 24 in reference to a burglary. Upon arrival he met with the victim who said she was sitting in the dining room, when two unknown men entered her home.
When questioned on how the men gained access into the residence, she said she usually leaves her front door open with the outer screen door secured so that she can get air in her home, according to the sheriff’s report.
She described the two men as were wearing black hooded sweatshirts, black jeans, and red bandanas covering their faces. She added that they appeared to be about six feet tall. Both men were carrying small silver pistols, she said, and each man wore clear plastic gloves on his hands.
According to the victim, the men held her and her 7-year-old daughter at gunpoint in the living room. They then asked her where the money was. She said she told them she did not have any money or anything in the home of value. The men then instructed her and her granddaughter to sit down in the living room and not make a sound. Afterward, they began to look around the house. After moments of searching, the victim said the two men left.
According to the victim, the men said if she called 911 after they left they would return.
The incident was reported as armed robbery and is still under investigation by the sheriff’s office.
