Alvin Neil Sanders, 42, faces a charge of armed robbery, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Patrick Cullinan. The robbery and beating took place around 1 p.m. at an apartment in the 1700 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, according to a sheriff’s report.

Angela Lamar of the 1700 block of Pennsylvania is also charged in the robbery, Investigator Cullinan said. She was admitted to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital and Clinics tonight for unknown injuries.

Ms. Lamar and Mr. Sanders allegedly invited Richard Bunch, a co-worker, into their home Friday after he was discharged from a hospital the same day. Mr. Bunch said he was resting on a couch today when the suspects beat him in the face and leg with a hammer and stole cash from him.

He is in stable condition at MCG, Investigator Cullinan said.

Mr. Sanders is described as a black man, about 6-feet-tall and weighing 195 pounds. Anyone with information can call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

Now that's what I call

Now that's what I call Southern Hospitality. Don't fool yourselves and say this happens everywhere. My family still doesn't lock their doors and they leave the keys in their cars all night.

Certainly some areas are

Certainly some areas are generally considered safer than others. However, leaving your doors unlocked or keys in cars is only asking for trouble in more ways than one. Even if you aren't worried about burglaries, etc. your car could be taken by a teenage joy rider and you potentially could have liability for their actions - either way, it just isn't good common sense. Good job to the RCSO for catching one of these thug home invaders and hopefully the 2nd will be caught very soon. Now, if only our court system will actually do something with them. NO BAIL for any violent criminals.

People stupid enough to leave

People stupid enough to leave their keys in their cars deserve to have their cars stolen. I don't care if you live in Pleasantville, USA; nowhere is safe and perfect enough to not have robberies and other crimes.
