ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County couple was bound and one of them was pistol whipped when two suspects broke into their home early Sunday morning.

Howard Salter and his wife told Dougherty County Police two men dressed in black broke through the door of their home at 2404 Regina Road around 4:30 Sunday morning. The suspects bound the couple before stealing about $40.00 in cash. Police say with more invasions of this type happening residents need to make sure their homes are secure.

"Be aware, try to have a deadbolt on your door if you can. Try and secure your door as solidly as possible. Reinforce the frame to the door if you can," said Captain Jimmy Sexton, Dougherty County Police.

Dougherty County Police say there have been several other home invasions where the suspects descriptions are the same, two black men, dressed in dark clothing. They're investigating to see if the incidents are related.
