Police are investigating a Woodward Avenue home invasion that occurred early Sunday.

According to a police report, a 52-year-old woman was sleeping on a couch of the residence in the 2200 block of Woodward Avenue around 4:30 a.m. when she heard someone say “Richmond County” and then kick in the front door.

Four black men dressed in all black with masks and gloves told the woman to go to the back of the house with another female resident and six children between the ages of 2 and 11.

The victims told police the men were armed with handguns.

After the home invasion, the residents discovered the intruders had taken several electronic components, cellphones, a purse, cash, tennis shoes and two sets of car keys.

Fair warning to RCSO. You can

Fair warning to RCSO. You can knock. You can ring the door bell. You can come up my driveway and blow the horn. You can call. But anyone hollering "Richmond County" and kicking in MY door is going to meet Mr. 12 ga 00 buck and Mr. .40 S&W.

Law enforcement's use of no knock, bust the door in warrants has given criminals the excuse to copy this tactic and IT IS going to backfire on the cops or get an innocent civilian trying to protect himself killed one day.

Home Invasion

and only 2 women and 6 children in the home. And then it takes until Tuesday to report on it? I don't know why it always takes an extra 24 hours or more to get the information on a crime out to the public. All of us have to be aware of what is going on and the better informed we are the better we can (hopefully) act.

You both have valid points.

You both have valid points. I answer my front door with my S&W these days
