2 sought in Stone Mountain home robbery, beating

STONE MOUNTAIN -- Gwinnett police are searching for two burglars who reportedly attacked and bound a Stone Mountain resident before pilfering his home.

The 31-year-old victim told police he came home Saturday evening to find two men in his Tiller Trail home. They struck his back and head, held him at gunpoint and bound his hands and feet with painting tape and an electrical cord. They implored about where the money was and threatened to shoot him if he looked up, according to a police report.

The victim told police he didn't recognize his attackers. They stayed in the home about 15 minutes, making off with his wallet, Wii video game console, two watches, $400 in cash, cell phone, laptop and GPS unit, the report states.

The victim told police he stayed in the kitchen corner where he'd been tied up until his roommate arrived and found him, the report states.

The roommate told police he found the victim tied up and bleeding in the kitchen, their backdoor kicked in. Police valued the stolen items at $3,100.

The victim declined transport to a hospital but complained that his miniature pincher dog had bolted during the incident and couldn't be located.

The suspects were described as 6 feet tall, wearing baseball caps, jackets and blue jeans. The white suspect weighed about 150 and the black man about 50 pounds more, the victim told police.

Police noted the smell of marijuana in the victim's bedroom. He told police he smoked but never sold the drug, the police report states.
