Second driveway robbery reported in Lilburn

LILBURN -- A Lilburn man was robbed in his driveway last week, the second such incident in the city over a span of about two months.

According to an Lilburn Police Department incident report obtained by the Daily Post, the 54-year-old male victim arrived at his home on Old Manor Court at about 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 9. From there, he told police he was assaulted and robbed by two masked males believed to be Hispanic.

"One of the males grabbed his arm while the other hit him on the head with what (the victim) described to be a pole or stick," the responding officer wrote. "The males then dragged him to the other side of his vehicle where they reached into his front left pocket and took his keys and wallet, ripping his pants in the process."

About $300 cash, a driver's license, credit card and Social Security card were stolen. The suspects reportedly drove off in a red Ford F-150 pickup truck.

The victim described the suspects as Hispanic based on their voices, police said. No arrests have been made.

The incident was the second driveway robbery inside Lilburn city limits in recent months. On Nov. 28, another man arrived home at his Greenleaf Drive residence -- about two miles from the Old Manor Court robbery -- and was approached by an unidentified black male.

That victim was robbed and shot once in the buttocks. Police have issued a sketch of the suspect in that case but no arrests have been made.

The cases are not believed to be related, Lilburn police spokesman Capt. Ben Haynes said.
