October 11, 2007

Thomasville -- A real estate agent is bound, gagged and robbed while showing a house.   Investigators say a Hispanic man going by the name Abel Coca Martin asked the agent to meet him at the Thomasville Days Inn Wednesday.

The realtor picked him up at the motel to show him some houses, and he attacked her.  

"They went to two different houses, went to a third one to look. She was showing him the house he pushed her down, held her down at knife point. Told her if she didn't quit yelling he was going to kill her," said Thomas County Sheriff's Inv. David Godwin.  

The realtor says he tied her up with a telephone cord, robbed her, and left. He stole $800  cash and some credit cards. He then took her car, drove it back to the Days Inn, and retrieved his own car.

Investigators say that car is a tan Honda accord with New Jersey license plates.
