Break-in, theft attempt foiled, woman says

An Augusta woman was home Thursday as two men kicked in the door of her Apple Court home and tried to steal a video game system.

The 29-year-old woman said she works during the night and was home at 9:46 a.m. when her dog began barking, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report. She heard the front door break and looked outside her bedroom to see a man standing in her living room with her Sony Playstation, the report said.

The first man dropped the Playstation and fled. A second man then came running from another part of the home where he “picked up a ironing board and held it like a shield” until he was out the front door.
