ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Daljeet Singh, who owns BMW Liquors in Pelham, was the victim of an early morning home invasion.

Investigators say just before 2:30 Monday morning, an unidentified white woman knocked on his door at the Heritage Square Apartments on West Railroad Street. He tells police the woman seemed in distress.

A short time later she was followed by a black woman and two black men. One of those men was armed with a silver handgun.

They forced their way inside the apartment while one of the suspects held Singh at gunpoint and demanded money. When he told them he didn't have a large sum of cash, the robbers made off with his wallet and a satchel containing documents. It is believed they fled on foot.

Singh wasn't injured and was able to call police. GBI agents and Pelham Police were on the scene throughout much of the early morning hours. While they have only a vague description of the suspects, Singh tells police he recognized one of them.

"The victim is the owner of a local liquor store. He feels certain that he's seen at least one of the assailants on occasion at the liquor store," said Chief investigator Rod Williams, Pelham Police.

Williams says it is possible the robbers targeted Singh because he owns a business. One of the suspects is described as white woman, 5'5" tall with short, brownish-blonde hair. A second female suspect is described as a slender, black woman wearing a gray pajama outfit.

 The two other suspects are described as black men wearing dark shirts and blue jeans. Investigators say it is too early to tell if they are from the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pelham Police Department or the GBI in Thomasville.
