A man armed with a crowbar broke into an apartment in Tucker and threatened to kill a female resident if she alerted police, according to an incident report.
The man is described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s, 150 lbs, wearing dark clothing, sporting a mohawk and a tattoo in the middle of his face.
The incident happened at the Northlake Manor Apartments in Woodbriar Circle on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 6 while the rest of the woman's family went to church.
The woman told police she heard a loud noise and found that her front door had been pried open. She encountered a man with a crowbar who ordered her to lie on the floor and to not look at him. He then said, "I will kill you if you call the police" and proceeded to steal a television set worth $2,339 and a cell phone worth $200.
The man is believed to have had an accomplice with a getaway car. No arrests have yet been made.
