A woman sat behind the driver’s seat of her vehicle early Sunday morning in the city of LaGrange, Georgia. The tranquil scene did not last long as two gunmen would soon force the woman from her vehicle at gunpoint and steal the vehicle only to ditch it in Chambers County shortly after the robbery.
According to information from a LaGrange Police Department Press Release the incident occurred at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday morning at the Lee’s Crossing Apartments located at 119 Old Airport Road in LaGrange.
The release states the victim was sitting in her car in the parking lot of the complex when she was approached by two males both armed with guns in their hands. The suspects demanded that the victim surrender her wallet, cellphone, and keys to her vehicle. She was then ordered out of her vehicle.
The duo of robbers jumped into the vehicle and fled. Shortly after the theft the vehicle was located in the Jackson Height’s housing community in Lanett. The robbery suspects had fled the scene and abandoned the vehicle. LaGrange police request anyone with information to contact 911 or Detective Slonaker at 706-883-2620.
