Robber holds gun to child's head during home invasion

Police seek 2 men after home robbed

 

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two men – one of whom is accused of holding a gun to a toddler’s head – after a home invasion early Thursday.

About 1:45 a.m., deputies went to the 2500 block of Drayton Drive, where Van­to­ria McNair, 24, and Demarco White, 28, said four armed men entered their home and demanded they hand over a “package,” according to a news release.

During the robbery, one of the suspects, Earl Hall, 25, of Byron Place, grabbed Mc­Nair’s 1-year-old child by the throat, put a gun the toddler’s head and threatened to shoot, an incident report said. McNair and White denied having the package and when the men began to search the house for it, fled with their children to a neighbor’s house and called 911.

Police have warrants charging Hall with armed robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, cruelty to children and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Jarrell Anthony Walker, 26, formerly of Drayton Drive, is being sought on charges of armed robbery, burglary and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Anyone with information can contact the Criminal Investigation Division at (706) 821-1020.
