COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A night of babysitting turns dangerous for one local teen at a Columbus apartment complex. Columbus Police say a teenage babysitter was robbed at gunpoint as the four children she was watching slept in the next room.

It happened around three o'clock Sunday morning at the Ashley Station Apartments off Talbotton Road.

18-year old Dominique Adkinson tells Columbus Police she was babysitting for the children's mother who was at work and had fallen asleep on the couch. That's when she says three black males, wearing all black clothing and carrying handguns, kicked the door in, stole a television and her car keys at gunpoint.

No one was injured but the men got away in Adkinson's 1994 green Pontiac Trans Am. If you have any information you are asked to call Columbus Police at (706)653-3400.
