COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Police are investigating an early morning carjacking on the city's south side.

It happened around 4 AM at Glory Days Bar and Grill off Saint Mary's Road.

A twenty-nine-year-old Phenix City woman tells police she was in the parking lot when two black males came up to her, pointed a handgun at her, and hijacked her Chevy Avalanche.

Also in South Columbus, investigators are taking a look at a burglary at Preferred Homes on Victory Drive that appears to be somewhat of an illegal home decorating shopping spree.

Police reports indicate a suspect or suspects used a cement block to break into two of the trailers and stole a wide variety of household items including a coffee table, blinds and even curtains.

Instead of breaking in through a window or door at the Steam Mill Food Mart on Steam Mill Road in Columbus, some would-be burglars tried using the roof early Saturday morning.

The store's owner says the suspect or suspects tried to break in through the ceiling over the cashier's desk.

The owner says the alarm scared them off and nothing was stolen.

Columbus police are also on the lookout for what neighbors are calling a peeping tom.

A woman at the Avalon Apartments on Cusseta Road tells police she was laying in bed when she saw a man peering inside her window.

She describes him as a white male about 5'9" wearing a gray shirt and shorts.

The man got away in a small blue four-door car.
