After a home invasion in Hephzibah Wednesday night, several gunmen stopped to rob a Blythe couple that was driving by, police said.

According to a Richmond County sheriff's report,  four gunmen in black ski masks entered a home in the 2400 block of Plantation Road around 8 p.m. and demanded two women inside give up their pocketbooks and a TV.

Once outside, three of the men stopped a vehicle driven by a Blythe woman, who was riding by the scene. One of the men attempted to push the woman from her car but was unsuccessful, police said. He then put his gun to her head and demanded money and she handed over her purse.

After the last gunman ran from the home, all four men jumped into a black SUV and fled the scene, witnesses told police.

Good grief! I had a dear

Good grief! I had a dear friend living on Plantation Road until a few months ago. Also, there was a murder at the house near the railroad tracks a few years ago. When will it end???

Also a home invasion off

Also a home invasion off Barton Chapel Rd.----but they say crime isn't THAT bad......give me a break!
It will end when law abiding people use self defense.
My car would be running over the fools trying to stop my car. (esp. wearing ski masks)

Asitisinaug, I thought you

Asitisinaug, I thought you lived in Columbia County... Columbia County is apart of metro Augusta. Seenitb4 lives in Gwinnett County and not the city of Augusta..

I just notice a few people only comment on certain articles.. The man shot in Aiken County near Graniteville has 0 comments...

I don't ever remember saying

I don't ever remember saying your name except mentioning you live in Gwinnett County.. Which was a response to someone saying I would say how lucky we are to live in Augusta. You seem to be very defensive...

Deflection. Anyway, always

Deflection. Anyway, always have your car doors locked and be ready to drive like a bat. About the home invasions, I just don't know what the answer is except to have on a gun in a holster at all times. Not something I am willing to do.

I am defensive---My daughter

I am defensive---My daughter lives in Richmond county...I want her to be safe & well. If you would put just a smidgen of concern on the crime there as you do about what business is coming to town..we probably could wipe crime away. WHY DONTCHA!
If you are Zeke....you should,

They can knock out your

They can knock out your window, then drag you out of the car. Also last i looked bullets go right through glass and sheet metal so don't get lulled into a false sense of security just cause you're in a car.

I know bullets can go through

I know bullets can go through metal cars BUT I still would stay in the car & try my best to run over the jerks!! I have had jerks trying to get in my car on Greene St..in augusta years ago.........late at night coming home from work.
Keep all doors locked--all the time!
I didn't run over anybody then but if they had not let go of the car they would have ended up with drag burns.
Someone suggested I should have backed up a few times!! :)
