Two Valdostans robbed at gunpoint

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police are looking for two gunmen who robbed two people last night.

Around 9:30 p.m., 37-year-old old Yan Lin and 58-year-old Chiong Kin Ho were robbed at gunpoint as they got out of their car at their Alden Street home.

Kin Ho is the manager of Fugi Gourmet inside The Valdosta Mall.

They had just gotten off work when Police say the robbers stole their laptop computers, cash, credit cards, their identification, and other electronics.

Tonight, police have no leads.

"The two guys took off running and I don't know how far they ran, but they saw them get into a vehicle but they weren't able to get a good look at the vehicle. And of course they were probably shaken up during all this so they didn't get a real good description of the two people," said Lt. Aaron Kirk, VPD.

No one was hurt during the robbery.

If you have any information on this crime, Valdosta Police ask you to call them at 229-293-3145.
