Armed robbery on Timber Lane
Police responded to a female screaming for help on Timber Lane in Summerville April 17, to find a 26-year-old woman who said she was cooking dinner when she heard her front door open and four black males entered her apartment, according to the police report.
One held her down with a gun to her head while the others rummaged through her apartment. All were carrying black handguns, according to the victim.
The victim told police that the perpetrators kept asking her “where is the money.” The victim told police the men appeared frustrated and eventually took her upstairs. They eventually ran out the front door.
The victim told police she had immediately run outside and screamed for help.
She reported that although she did not get a good look at them because they were wearing white shirts over their faces, one had dreadlocks and one wore burgundy shoes with paint on them.
A K-9 responded with negative results and a crime scene team responded and processed the scene.
The victim believes the suspects took an unknown amount of money.
Throughout the entire incident the victim’s 3-year-old godson was sitting on the couch watching television.
Anyone with information should contact the DCSO.
