Man threatened and robbed in his Deewood Loop South home
A 30-year-old man told police he was in the basement of his home on Deewood Loop South at 1 p.m. Nov. 29 when he heard his kitchen door being kicked in. He said he remained hiding in the basement until a man came downstairs, pointed a gun at him and demanded to know where "Matt" kept his drugs.
The resident said he remained face down on the floor until he heard a woman speaking with the robber, who was rummaging about the place. Both eventually left, according to the report, taking with them a $200 cell phone, two flat-screen televisions valued at $2,500 and a $300 gaming system.
The resident said he doesn't know anyone named Matt, let alone where he might keep his drugs.
