An elderly man and his daughter were robbed at gunpoint after two men forced their way into their home last week.
According to Davie County Sheriff’s Chief J.D. Hartman, on Jan. 25 around 11 p.m. two armed suspects entered a home on NC 801 South near Deadmon Road and demanded money.
“They knocked on the door and said their car had broken down and they needed to use a phone. When the woman opened the door to hand them her cell phone they forced their way in.” Hartman said the two armed men stole a “significant amount of money” and also took the cell phone.
The victims were an 84-year-old man and his 51-year-old daughter, Hartman said.
Hartman said the suspects direction of travel was not known and the only description was that one was a white male and the other was a black male and both were wearing dark clothes. Call 751-5547 with information …
