Cook family beaten in home invasion

September 4, 2003

Cook County - A woman and her handicapped son are beaten during a South Georgia home invasion.

Several masked men stormed into a house on Barneyville Road Monday morning and demanded money. They beat 60-year old Diane Shaffer and her handicapped son.

This is the fourth home invasion in Cook County in two months, but investigators don't think they're related. "The previous home invasions we had seemed to target Hispanics and the suspects were armed, but this is something different," said Capt. Colin Millison.

Ms. Shaffer and her son were treated for the injuries.
