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.

+3 living the dream.

Can't leave your doors unlocked in Augusta. They scumbags are getting bold and nobody is stopping them. We got H.E.A.T. writing go-fast tickets by nobody stopping the home invasions, gang assaults, and bank robberies.

If you want police protection around here you have to arm yourself and be your own police. We've got cops.....and they will be glad to come take a report......and they might even catch who did it....or not.....but the won't protect you or your property.

Arm yourself....keep your doors locked.....and keep your eyes open.

A home invasion and a possible murder over tv sets and sneakers?

This is just plain CRAZY.

Thank God that woman wasn't killed, she could've been.

High traffic area since the Mall was built. I'd hate to live there with Walmart nearby now, too.

For those who may have missed

For those who may have missed it before, POLICE CANNOT PROTECT YOU. They can only act after the crime has occurred. Arm yourself.
