July 28—WARNER ROBINS — A 24-year-old resident was awakened by three men inside his Bonaire home, assaulted and robbed late Monday night.

Authorities were on the scene of the 11:30 p.m. home invasion for several hours canvassing the neighborhood and looking for potential evidence inside and around the home in the 100 block of Granville Street, said Houston County sheriff’s Capt. Jon Holland.

The resident, a cashier at a convenience store on Ga. 96, told sheriff’s deputies that he was asleep alone in his bedroom when he was awakened by three men who shined a light in his face, according to a sheriff’s office incident report. The light was created by the resident’s cellphone next to his bed.

One of the men next punched the resident in the face and shouted, “Where’s the money? Give us the money!”

He next felt a handgun pressed against his head and was told, “Give us the money, or I will kill you.”

The resident gave the men the money he had, which was about $500 to $600 that he had in a clothing bag, according to the report.

The men fled with the money.

The resident was treated on the scene by emergency medical workers for a bruise above his right eye from where he was punched, the report said.

He was not able to see the faces of his assailants, according to the report.

Anyone with information related to the home invasion is asked to contact sheriff’s investigators at 478-542-2085.
