Lee Co. Woman speaks out about scary home invasion

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A Lee County woman says she'll think twice before opening her front door after a frightening home invasion.

Tonya Stewart says Friday night a group of young people rushed inside her home and beat her up.

Her husband ran to help. In the meantime, her 2-year-old niece suffered a busted lip.

Stewart ended up with bruises and a black eye.

“I just felt like my house was in danger and my life was in danger. I felt like I was gonna be killed or someone in my house was gonna be killed. I had a little girl, a baby at the front door and the baby was trying to go outside,” says Lee County resident Tonya Stewart.

Stuart says she didn't know the attackers.

All they tried to take was a television. She says sheriff's investigators made several arrests.

But we haven't been able to get the details from the sheriff's office.
