East Augusta home invasion reported

Richmond County authorities are investigating a home invasion off Sand Bar Ferry Road on Tuesday evening.

According to an incident report, a 17-year-old was entering his home on Sapelo Circle around 8:30 p.m. when two black men with handguns rushed the door and entered the home.

The teen’s mother, 36, told deputies one man put a gun to her head and demanded money while another man forced the teen into the bathroom.

The mother and her 14-year-old daughter left the home to seek help from neighbors.

A third man was seen in the backyard.

The gunmen, who were wearing black pajama-type pants, white T-shirts and covered their faces with white bandanas, had left by the time deputies arrived.
