MACON, Ga. -- According to a police report, a man who participated in a Thursday night home invasion robbery on Steeplechase Road went back inside after the deed to ask one of the victims how to start a vehicle equipped with a “push to start” feature.

The Telegraph reports three armed and masked men wearing all black kicked in the door of the house at about 11 p.m. while a woman and her mother were asleep. The 57-year-old woman told police the men first threatened her brother, saying that he owed them $30,000, and also held the woman and her mother at gunpoint.
