Home Invaders Bind Victim, Take Electronics, Gun
According to the DeKalb county police report, the incident happened March 6 in unincorporated Lithonia.
Three men bound a resident in unincorporated Lithonia with duct tape, then took his electronics, money and gun during an armed robbery at a home in the 5500 block of Salem Road in unincorporated Lithonia, according to a DeKalb county police report.
The incident occurred March 6 between 1:50-2:32 p.m., according to the incident report.
The victim told police he was in his bedroom when he heard a knock at the door. No one was there, so he went back to his bedroom, the report states.
As he was trying to fall asleep, the victim said a man he didn't know, described as a black make with medium length dreadlocks and wearing all black, came into his bedroom, armed with a hand gun.
The report states that the home invader pointed the gun toward the victim's head and told him to get on the floor. He complied.
While on the floor, the victim said two more men he didn't know, described the same as the first, entered the bedroom. With silver duct tape, they bound the victim's legs and his hands, which were placed behind his back, according to the report.
The men repeatedly asked, "[where] is the money and the safe," according to the report.
The victim said the men took his cell phone, his wallet containing $200, his Georgia ID card, two flat screen televisions, two Play Station 3 game systems, a laptop, a Kindle Fire and a 32 caliber hand gun.
The victim was able to free his legs after the men left, according to the report. He told police he saw the men flee in a red four door Chevy Impala with dark tinted windows.
The resident ran two houses down the street, where a neighbor cut the duct tape from his hands.
