Posted: Updated:
WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) -

Officers of the West Point Police Department responded to the West Point Housing Authority in reference to an armed robbery on Thursday, August 22 at approximately 2:45 a.m.  

Upon arrival, officers met with the victim Willie Fears. He stated a suspect, whom he recognized, came to his residence and knocked on the door. 

Fears said he opened the door and observed "Quez" and two other black males. The males, wearing white rags over the tops of their heads, entered his apartment uninvited.

Fears described them as young black males, possibly in their late teens or early twenties, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with slender builds. Fears stated when he saw "Quez" with the two other males; he became suspicious of their intent.

He stated he immediately ran out the front door of his apartment and into the street, crossing over Avenue K. Fears added he tripped and fell as he ran into a small field between the 1300 block apartments on Avenue K.

Fears said while he was on the ground, he felt the suspect's hands going through his pant pockets. The suspects took his money and then fled the location on foot.

If you have any information on this case you are encouraged to call the West Point Police Investigation Division at 706-645-3551, the Valley Area Crime Stoppers at 334-756-8200 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at 706-812-1000.
