Police: Suspect poses as victim, cries, begs for money before armed home robbery

Police said the homeowner escaped with her two children without injury and called 911 at a neighbor's home.

MABLETON, Ga. – A woman was forced to flee her home after three robbery suspects paid her home a visit in a bizarre encounter.

Around 9:40 p.m. Monday, police said a black female and two black males forced their way into a home at the intersection of Oakridge Drive and Inwood Place in Mableton and demanded money at gunpoint.

Police said the female suspect, who identified herself as "Amanda," walked up to the home and activated the resident's Ring camera.

"I'm here for T. It’s T’s girlfriend. Can you please open the door? It’s an emergency it’s T’s girlfriend. Its T's girlfriend," Amanda was heard saying on the security footage.

Claiming to be "T's" girlfriend, Amanda told the homeowner behind the door she desperately needed money.

“He already knows I’m pregnant and he's supposed to give me some money for an abortion," Amanda said.

The woman opened the door for Amanda, but quickly panicked and slammed it closed. Police said Amanda continued with her act as she began to cry while begging for money.

"How could you do this to me," she said in the video. "You know I’m only 19. You know I don't have no money. You know I don't. You know me."

But police said the homeowner didn’t know Amanda and was later harassed as two masked and armed men came to the door and forced their way in demanding money.

Police said the homeowner escaped with her two children without injury and called 911 at a neighbor’s home. The three suspects got away and were last seen fleeing in a silver or gray SUV.

Police described "Amanda" as a light-skinned black female with “black hair on top that was braided into a ponytail with blonde hair on the bottom.” She was last seen wearing a long-sleeved shirt with the word “reckless” on the front.

There was not a solid description of the two male suspects since they were both wearing masks.

If anyone has information on the case, they're asked to call the Smyrna Police Department at 770-434-6666 or call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Any tips to Crime Stoppers Atlanta can be anonymous and there are rewards up to $2,000.
