Authorities are searching for three armed men who accosted a homeowner and his wife early this morning, demanding money.

The male victim arrived at his home on Cedar Creek Drive around 1 a.m. and as he got out of his vehicle, three black males - one with a red bandanna covering his face, all brandishing handguns - came at him from around the side of his home.

They forced the man inside and confronted both him and his wife, demanding money. They had the male victim tell his wife where money was in the home and she got it for the robbers. Once they received the undisclosed amount of cash they fled.

The three are described only as black males. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Newton County Sheriff's Office at (678) 625-1400 or online at All tips can be given anonymously.
