Two Albany homes invaded by armed robbers

July 13, 2006

Albany -- Albany Police are investigating two home invasion robberies overnight. Thieves took more than ten thousand dollars in one.

Tina McKnight said two masked men with pistols invaded her West Whitney Avenue home about 10:45 Wednesday night. She said they held the six people in the home at gunpoint for about ten minutes as they ransacked the house.

McKnight owns two restaurants. She says the robbers took more than ten thousand dollars she brought home from work. McKnight said " We are all just lucky to be alive today, because usually when they do stuff like that these days you hear they do more killing than they do, and that's what scared me. The money is replaceable, nobody's life is."  

McKnight said Police told her they're questioning a suspect. She also says she's going to move.

There was another home invasion about five o'clock Thursday morning. An incident report shows someone broke into a home in the 19-hundred block of Elk Horn Lane in Northwest Albany and robbed the occupants.

 Neighbors say the apartment is occupied by a group of Hispanic men.
