“You can only imagine, you are asleep in your bed, by yourself and these two men just come plying into your apartment, searching for something, holding you at gunpoint. You are petrified,” Officer Brittany Wallace said.

Police said the young woman just moved to Georgia in January. She had planned to go to college soon.

Neighbors we talked to were unaware of the assault.

“This is definitely scary. I am so glad I have a dog,” one resident said.

Police said the only description they have on the intruders is that the men were about 6 feet in height.
