Police search for masked Moultrie robber

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Moultrie Police are searching for a person of interest after an armed robbery at a home over the weekend.

Officers said a masked man with a gun showed up on the front porch of a home and demanded money.

Two men living at a home on the 300 block of Rowland Drive were sitting on their front porch Saturday night when the armed robber suddenly showed up.

"The bad person approached from the rear of the house to the front porch area where they were sitting at," said Investigator Alfred Anderson.

Police said the masked gunman then forced the victims inside the house.

Neither of the victims speaks English.

"One individual did give up some cash that he had on himself and [the suspect] took both of them inside and begin searching the house for more money," said Anderson.

Police said one of the victims was able to get away. He ran to a convenience store next door and called 911 while the robber was still in the house.

"After he found additional cash, that's when he left out of the house," said Anderson.

The person got away with $450. Investigators said they have a person of interest, but so far no one has been arrested in the investigation.

Investigators urge anyone with information about the armed robbery to call the Moultrie Police department.
