Conyers police are looking for a woman who allegedly robbed a 75-year-old man in his home on May 16 after threatening to shoot him.

Keisha Harris, a 27-year-old black female about 5-foot 3-inches in height and a reported friend of the victim, came over shortly before 2 a.m. asking to borrow some money.

The victim, who had reportedly lent money to the suspect before, offered to give her $5. He then went into the bathroom, and upon returning, Harris was reportedly holding something wrapped in a hand towel.

Harris allegedly threatened to shoot the victim if he didn't give her more money and held his wallet in her hands.

According to police reports the victim asked Harris, "You wouldn't shoot me would you? I am your friend," and struggled with her or the wallet for about 15 seconds.

She overpowered him and removed money from the wallet. She then proceeded to enter an older model truck or van, which started and sped away quickly after she got in.

When the officer arrived, he noticed a yellow flat head screwdriver lying on the victim's living room sofa wrapped in a white hand towel, which the victim said was the object Harris threatened to shoot him with.
