Suspects being interviewed after home invasion

by John A. Winters

At least one gunman and two or three others burst into a residence this morning demanding money from the occupants, which included a small child.

An extensive manhunt was underway for the robbers, and authorities were interviewing potential suspects, according to investigators. No one in the house, which included the child and two other women, were injured.

At the time of the break in on Brookfield Drive off Shenandoah Boulevard, one woman was in the back and another in the kitchen, said Investigator Jae Robertson with the Coweta County Sheriff's Office.

"A black male entered and collided with one woman. He pulled a gun, knocked her down and kept yelling, 'where's the money, where's the money,'" Robertson said. That victim said she only saw the one gunman, but heard multiple footsteps.

The second woman kept her hands up and told investigators she saw two men, but only one weapon, Robertson said. A BOLO was put out for the suspects after the 10 a.m. break-in and three or four suspects were being interviewed after being stopped several blocks away.
