Intruders wake up Marietta woman, hold her at gunpoint


Highlights

The 19-year-old woman was not hurt, Marietta police said.

A woman woke up Thursday to two masked men in her home and a gun in her face, Marietta police said.

Men wearing gloves forced their way into her apartment in the 1800 block of Roswell Road about 2:05 a.m., according to police.

The woman, 19, was asleep in her bed at the time, when the sound of the door breaking woke her up.

She told police she “crouched down in the corner of the bedroom,” according to an incident report. At that point, one of the men approached her and “put what she believes to be a gun to her neck and told her to be quiet,” police said in the report.

The other man searched her home. 

Although the woman had cash and credit cards in her purse, the men left without taking anything, Marietta police Officer Brittany Wallace said.

No arrests have been made.

The two men are described as about 6-foot tall.
