SAVANNAH -- Gunmen stole the car of two sisters in their 60s visiting Savannah from Michigan after the women arrived at a downtown bed and breakfast, according to Savannah-Chatham police.

At 10:15 p.m. Thursday, the two sisters - one from Lansing, Mich., and the other from Grand Rapids, Mich. - returned to the bed and breakfast in the 100 block of East 35th Street, where they had checked in.

Three black teens with guns approached the two women, knocking one of them to the ground. The assailants hit the other woman in the head with a gun, said metro police spokeswoman Judy Pal.

Both women were taken to Memorial University Medical Center. As of Friday night, neither were listed on the hospital's registry, said Memorial spokeswoman Becky Keightley.

The men then fled in the women's red Dodge Caliber.

Three more real brave thugs.

Three more real brave thugs. Candidates for the Obama youth corps. Cops, if you catch them just kill them on the spot. Too much chance they will get probation in our fine legal system.

These VIOLENT THUGS or as

These VIOLENT THUGS or as some such as Justice4 and others would call them, missunderstood youth are PATHETIC. Chances are highly likely they will never amount to anything positive for our society or contribute positively in any way unless they get a swift and strong kick in the butt along with proper education to turn their lives around. We MUST do something to bring violent crime under control and remove these thugs from our society.

hope they catch the stupid

hope they catch the stupid thugs. Nothing like going and getting a real job. If they are caught- and not killed in the process- maybe they can learn to make license plates (or do they still do that).
