Valdosta - A frightening trend is emerging in Valdosta.

There have been seven home invasion robberies in the last two months.

The most recent was Monday night when two armed men knocked on the door of a home on Tomlinson Street, forced their way inside and stole money from a woman who lived there.

Now, police are warning people to be careful.

"Look first, don't just open the door. Look out a window, use a peep hole, make sure of who it is. If you don't see anyone or don't know the person, don't open the door to investigate," says Commander Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police Department.

They say no one involved in the any of the home invasions has been hurt.

They hope with the proper safety precautions and with more patrols, they'll help keep it that way.
