Lilburn Police Investigating Another Residential Armed Robbery

This is second driveway armed robbery in the past two months in Lilburn.

On Jan. 9, about 10:30 p.m., Lilburn Police Department responded to an armed robbery at a home in the 4900 block of Old Manor Court.

When police arrived, the victim said that he has just arrived home from work when he was approached by two masked men believed to be Hispanic. The description was based on the suspects' voices. 

The victim said that the men came from behind, as he exited his vehicle. One of the men grabbed his arm while the other struck him in the head with a pole or stick, according to a police report.

The men then dragged the victim to the other side of the vehicle, where they stole his keys and wallet from his left pocket.

According to the victim, the men then hopped into a red Ford Pickup truck and drove away.

The men got away with the victim's driver's license, a social security card, a QuikTrip credit card, a work identification and $300 in cash.

Police searched for the vehicle, but could not locate it.

This is the second such incident of a residential armed robbery in Lilburn in the past two months. In the earlier incident, an armed man shot and robbed a man in his driveway on Greenleaf Drive on Nov. 28.

No one has been arrested in either care, according to Capt. Ben Haynes, of the Lilburn Police Department. The two cases are not believed to be related, he said.

If anyone has information that could assist police in these investigations, call Lilburn Police at 770-638-2218.

"I would advise residents to be aware of their surroundings and if something does not look right or out of place to call the police," Haynes added.

No reason to call police. We have been robbed 2times, and no action was taken. Just a waste of time. They NEVER do anything, even if it is armed robbery.

I respectfully disagree. Perhaps your problem is that you live in a neighborhood in which everyone is indifferent to one another. I can honestly say that Neighborhood Watches work and help police. You forget that police are re-actionary in most cases. They typically respond AFTER something has happened. If you and your neighbors were more pro-active then when things happen you would be able to be more helpful to police and you wouldn't have such a negative view of them. We have had instances of burglaries in our neighborhood and in 3 out of 4 cases, because of neighbors helping the police, the LPD was successful in arresting the perpetuators.
