COVINGTON, Ga. – An aspiring musician went to a house in Covington to record music Monday afternoon, only to be robbed at gunpoint by two men who were inside the house with him, police said.

According to a Covington Police Department incident report, the victim went to the residence on Griffin Lane at around 4:15 p.m. to record with somebody he knew only over an Instagram page. He reportedly told police he had not been at the residence before.

The victim said he was in the living room just before 7 p.m. when the pair walked in armed with a rifle that resembled an AK-47 and a .45 cal. pistol. One of the men reportedly told the victim to take off his pants.

The victim told police he told both suspects “It’s not worth it, here is my stuff” and handed over his pants with his black wallet containing $700, his bank card and ID in the pocket. He told police once the suspects had his wallet, they ran out of the backdoor to the residence and he ran out of the front door.

According to the report, the victim also said there was a woman at the residence who left the house approximately 20 minutes before the robbery took place.

One of the suspects is described as possibly in his 30s, 5-foot-9-inches, 160 pounds.

A CPD spokesman told The Covington News investigators are actively working the case.
