Worker apparently robbed at construction site



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A construction worker was at a house on Autumn Brooke Court June 17 when he apparently was robbed at gunpoint.

The man said two men entered the house and one started talking with the worker about employment while the other went upstairs. When the man came back downstairs, the worker said the man put a handgun to his head and demanded his wallet and cell phone. The worker said he complied and the men left.

The worker didn’t contact the sheriff’s office until June 22 because his phone was stolen and he didn’t have his supervisor’s number. The man said he had the number at home, and called a few days later after the supervisor gathered information and the worker returned to work.

On June 16, a different report was completed for criminal damage and theft by taking for an incident that occurred at the same house. The summary said someone punched holes in the drywall in every room of the house and equipment was taken.

The worker was unable to get a license plate number for the suspects’ car, but did get the make and model, so an alert was issued.
