Police searching for Forrest Rd. robbery suspects

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Columbus man is recovering after experiencing a brutal attack inside his own home on Monday.

Steve Porter says a group of teenagers asked him for something to drink before forcing their way inside his home off Forrest Road over the weekend.

Porter told News Leader 9 one of his attackers hit him with a metal object similar to a crowbar. Porter says he tried to escape through his bedroom window but couldn't get away.

"My heart was pumping out of my chest, because I've been robbed before and it's not a good feeling," Porter said. "It's just a terrifying situation.  The worst part about it was that I was actually pleading for them to please leave and they were still there attacking me."

The group reportedly stole close to $1,200 worth of computer electronics. Police say they are looking for the suspects; most of them are under the age of 18.

If you have any information on this case you are asked to call Columbus police at 706-653-3400.
