Athens-Clarke County police said they were investigating a home-invasion armed robbery that occurred early Wednesday at a residence north of downtown.

A man was returning to his home on Atlanta Avenue at about 2:20 a.m. when he walked in on at least two masked intruders who were in the process of burglarizing the residence, police said.

The victim was unsure how many burglars were in the home located east of Barber Street and north of Prince Avenue, according to police.

The suspects each pointed a gun at the victim prior to leaving with electronic devices and other stolen items, according to police.

The victim’s two roommates were in bed at the time and slept through the entire incident, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information about this case call Detective Scott Black at (707) 613-3330, ext. 798, or scott.black@accgov.com.
