It’s unknown whether Monday night’s robbery at an Aubie Lane home is connected to two earlier hold-ups in South Rome that occurred May 12 and Friday, respectively.
No one was injured in the Monday night robbery at a duplex on Aubie Lane, off Redmond Circle. It happened between 9:30 and 10:30 p.m., when the 43-year-old victim was sitting outside in his carport. Two suspects approached, and forced him inside his home at gunpoint, reports state.
According to police, the suspects made the victim lie face down on the floor. They then robbed him, taking items belonging to him and his three teen children.
The suspects took a $150 purse, a $40 purse, debit and credit cards and car keys. The suspects then left the scene on foot, reports state.
Contacted Tuesday, the victim declined to speak.
Police say both suspects are tall, black men in their early 20s. Both wore hoodies over their heads and “bluish” face masks. One wore a heavy, brown jacket and the other had a black jacket.
Detectives continue to investigate two other armed robberies that happened recently.
A 30-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint late May 12 by two suspects inside his 200 block South Broad Street apartment.
The second robbery happened late Friday. Two suspects armed with a knife robbed The Big H, 29 E. Main St., and took cash, cigarettes and beer. Those suspects also ran from the scene.
The same Big H was robbed March 22. In that robbery, the suspects escaped with about $3,000.
Anyone with information should call Rome police at 706-238-5111.
