Man robbed and threatened with a gun during home invasion

CONYERS — A Rockdale County man was so shaken after a violent home invasion that he asked to meet sheriff’s office deputies in a public location to report the crime.

The 42-year-old victim told the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office that he was returning home around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday and passed by two young black males walking down the street in his neighborhood. He was listening to a book on tape and did not pay too much attention, Deputy Thomas Green III reported.

He said he saw the two suspects walk closely behind his SUV as he was pulling into the garage and just as he opened his car door, one of the males pointed a gun in his face and told him to get out of the vehicle.

The two stole his wallet and car keys and made him lie face down on the ground while they searched through his wallet. The suspects took his phone and debit cards, although the victim said that he told them a false PIN number, the incident report states.

The suspects then ordered the victim to walk inside his house where they again made him lie face down on the floor while they stole various items and loaded them into his SUV.

“After the two subjects were finished loading his vehicle, they tied his hands and feet together while he was face down on the floor, put a pillow and a towel over his head and discussed shooting him,” the deputy stated in his report.

The suspects ultimately opted not to shoot the man, and left the house about 30 or 45 minutes later with all the stolen items.

The victim managed to work himself free of his restraints and drove in his wife’s car to Walmart, where he called 911. He told the deputy that he left his home after the robbery because he was fearful that the suspects would return and felt safer meeting at the shopping center.

He told the deputy that his wife and children are out of town and were not in the home during the robbery.

Investigators were able to locate the victim’s SUV a short distance from his home, but are still searching for the two suspects, who are both believed to be between the age of 18 and 25 years.

The first suspect, who brandished the handgun, is described as a black male, about 5 foot, 6 inches in height with a slim build, wearing a gray and white hooded sweatshirt. The gun was described as a handgun, possibly a full-size semi-automatic with a sliver or metallic colored slide and a black grip.

The second suspect is approximately 5 foot, 9 inches tall with a stocky build and slightly heavy set, wearing a white T-shirt that he had pulled over his head during the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Jeremy Best at 770-278-8160.

In other news, a 16-year-old told the Sheriff’s Office that he had been jumped around 11 p.m. Tuesday when he was walking in the area of Peeks Chapel Elementary School.

The victim said he had walked to a friend’s house in the Olde Salem Township subdivision to get his phone and was walking home near the cut by the pool when he noticed a black male with dreads and facial hair sitting on a bench. A short time later, another black male with short hair came up to him and told him to give him everything he had.

“(The victim) told him he didn’t’ have anything and that is when the male with dreads punched him in the face,” the incident report states.

He said he was beaten for about five minutes before he was able to get up and leave and that one of them may have had a gun. He ran back to his friend’s house and called him mom, who was at work. His mother contacted police when she got off work and picked up her son.

Zoë Kravitz Just Ditched Her Signature Braids

James McCauley/Rex/REX USA

Zoë Kravitz has worn waist-length box braids for quite some time. But, just in time for summer, the actress sprang for the crop. These days — according to her Instagram — she's got a perfectly tousled chin-length bob. And, while we're definitely sorry to see her signature style go, this look totally suits her. It's fun and youthful, but still a little bit edgy — pretty much like the star herself.

This wasn't a just-for-fun chop, though. Kravitz is set to star as Christina in the installment of the Divergent trilogy: Allegiant. The mini-makeover was for the role (way to commit, girl.) And, just like the rising star's new 'do, we're sure the film is going to be great!
