Moultrie man robbed twice in one week

People who live in a Moultrie mobile home park are fed up with crime after a man was robbed twice in less than a week.

"They are just hard working people, they don't bother nobody,” said Jeremy Terry, Neighbor.

Jeremy Terry is upset by recent activities at Regency Village, including two robberies of one victim in less than a week.

"This is pretty quiet and to have somebody come over here and not rob somebody once and traumatize them but twice in the same week,” said Terry. “It's wrong."

Terry lives two homes away from where police say Juan Hernandez Andes was visiting friends Friday night. He was outside on the phone when he was approached by two armed men who took his cellphone and an unknown amount of cash.

"You're stealing from a hard working family that struggles to make it like we all do and to just come over here and do something like that is just wrong,” said Terry. “There's other means of getting money than to rob somebody like that."

Tuesday night, Andes reported to police another robbery attempt at the same home. This time, Andes says two men in dark clothing attempted to rob him and two other men. Terry says the landlord has been working hard to make sure the neighborhood is safe.

"I do help out the landlord, with fixing trailers and helping around here,” said Terry.

We've been unable to confirm whether police think the two crimes are connected.

"If they've done it once, they've done it twice, they'll do it again,” said Terry.

No arrests have been made.

If you have any information on the robberies, you are asked to call Moultrie Police.
