Deputies looking for 3 armed robbery suspects

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

An Augusta woman was terrorized in her home when she was robbed at gunpoint in the middle the afternoon.

The incident has people in a West Augusta neighborhood making sure their doors are locked at all times.

"Now it's definitely something that you have to do," said Theresa Stotler, the victim's sister. "You have to lock your doors because they just walked into her house with a gun. Nobody really though that at 12 in the afternoon that anybody is going to do that."

According to the incident report, the 55-year-old homeowner was at her home alone on Wylds Road when a man wearing a dark bandana over his face walked into her house uninvited. He pointed a gun in her face and told her to get on the floor and not look up. The woman told deputies three men went through her home and left with two flat-screen TVs and sneakers.

Stotler and her husband have been living in this neighborhood for 40 years, and she says the robbers got away with more than just TVs and shoes; they took the neighborhood's peace of mind.

"I don't walk in fear but it is a concern to think that in this day and age that you're not even safe in your own home," Stotler said.

She's just glad her neighbor wasn't injured.

"I'm just thankful that my neighbor did not get hurt and that all they took were minimal things that can always be replaced," she said.

The robbery is still under investigation. Neighbors are hoping that the suspects are caught soon.

If you have any information on the robbery, contact the Richmond County Sheriff's Office at 706-821-1080.
