T'ville police on the lookout for armed robbers | News
THOMASVILLE, GA- Thomasville police are searching for three men who robbed a family at gunpoint Wednesday.
The husband and father of the family, who lives in the 2000 block of East Pinetree Blvd. says someone knocked on the door and he opened it.
He said the man claimed that he was trying to locate a friend. While they were talking, another man pushed the first man into the apartment at gun point and demanded money.
The victim also saw another man waiting outside with a gun.
While his wife and three-year-old child watched, the victim pointed out a large sum of money, and the men wanted to know where the rest of the money was.
The resident said there was no more money, so the suspects took his gold rings.
The victim did not recognize any of the suspects, who he described as three black men, one with dreads, and the other two with short hair cuts.
Thomasville police cautions residents not to open their doors for people if they do not know who is there. People should identify anyone who knocks on the door, day or night.
