NCSO investigating early morning home invasion reported Saturday

COVINGTON, Ga. - Newton County Sheriff's Office Investigators are looking into a reported Saturday morning home invasion that resulted in false imprisonment of a Newton County man. 

According to the NCSO incident report, the Wilshire Walk resident reported hearing his back door being kicked in around 2 a.m. March 30. 

"He jumped out of bed and when he got halfway into the living room from his room, two males had 9 mm pistols pointed in his face," Deputy Davon Sydnor reported. "He stated he was instructed to lay on the floor, and while doing so, one of the males put a plastic bag over his face and then covered him up with a rug."

According to the report, as the victim was laying down, one of the male suspects kneeled over him and put a gun to his back while the other male stole items from the home.

NCSO Deputy Michael Gregg told The Covington News items including jewelry, a computer, cash and a debit card were taken among other things. One of the larger items stolen was the victim's 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. 

The victim reported the males were approximately 5-foot, 7 inches tall, wearing all black, masks and gloves.
