Authorities searching for trio of suspects after thieves steal televisions, sneakers in home invasion



Authorities are searching for three suspects following a home invasion Wednesday afternoon in Augusta.

Around 12:45 p.m., deputies responded to reports of an armed robbery at 1628 Wylds Road, according to a Richmond County incident report.

The victim, 55-year-old Evelyn Martin, told police a man entered the home through the front door, pointed a gun at her and asked if anyone else was inside, the report stated.

The suspect and Martin walked through the residence before the suspect told Martin to “get down on the floor and not look up,” the report said.

The first suspect then told another suspect it was clear to enter the home. While both suspects were inside, a third suspect was yelling that they needed to leave because individuals were walking past the home, according to the report.

No injuries were reported, but the suspects took two flat-screen televisions and assorted sneakers, according to the report.

The first suspect is described as a black male in his mid-40s, wearing tan pants, a blue T-shirt and a dark bandanna over his face. No descriptions were given for the remaining suspects.
