ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man is in jail after telling police he was held at gunpoint and pistol whipped inside a Cone Street Apartment. 

Police say Sylvester Anderson told them he broke into a vacant apartment and was sleeping there overnight.

Anderson told police that someone came in and hit him with a gun after telling him to leave.

Anderson went to a nearby store to call 911, and that's where he was booked for criminal trespass.

Police are still looking for whoever pistol whipped Anderson, as their investigation continues.
