Moultrie - Early Sunday morning, three men forced their way into a house where they robbed and brutally attacked three Hispanics. Elsalvador and Valeriano Cruz and Mariano Marques were struck in the face with the butt of a shotgun. There have been close to 20 armed robberies in Colquitt County this year.
Many of them, attacks on Hispanics by two or three black men. Several of the attacks have happened in the county, at Knight's mobile home park, but the latest attack was in the city on Joe Lewis Avenue.
Police say they're working to find the culprits, but they need the public's help. Investigator Seth Walters says, "We're very frustrated. Basically, we have no leads to follow up on. We're basically crying out to the public to help us out with any knowledge they have that could help us."
Anyone with information should call either the Moultrie Police Department or the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office.
One thing that may cut down on the armed robberies is a stronger presence of law enforcers in Colquitt County.
Just this week, Sheriff Al Whittington got approval to hire two more deputies. He had a bugdet surplus from last year, so commissioners said he could use some of the money to pay for the deputies.
They also approved the purchase of two new patrol cars. The new positions and cars will cost about 196-thousand dollars.
