ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police detectives spent the early morning hours investigating a pair of home invasions. The first happened just after 10:00 Sunday night in the 2500 block of Crescent Drive in East Albany.
A few hours later, officers were called out to an apartment on Stuart Avenue for the same crime. In that case, a man was attacked.
It happened around 2 a.m. Monday morning at 2208 Stuart Avenue Apt. B. A man and woman were inside that apartment when police say two men kicked in the door, at least one of them was armed with a gun. They tied up and beat the man before stealing two flat screen televisions and a car. The victim was treated by EMS at the scene. The woman was not hurt.
Right now police are looking for that stolen car. It's a green 1998 Buick Park Avenue with Georgia Tag B-C-W 1389.
The victim of the Crescent Drive home invasion, Kassie Ross, told police three black men with their faces disguised approached her on a porch. They forced her inside her home and stole a piggy bank and her cell phone. She was not hurt.
Police would not say if they believe the two crimes are connected.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Albany Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
