WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Several people were found bound at a home in Winston-Salem during an armed robbery Monday night.

Police responded to the home on Dew Avenue around 8:22 p.m.

A 28-year-old woman, who lived nearby, said she was in the garage when someone knocked on the garage door.

When she opened the door, a man dressed in camouflage and mask, pointed a gun at her and forced his way inside the home.

Once inside, the suspect bound the hands of the woman and two other adults, who lived at the home, while an armed robbery occurred.

Four children were also at the home during the invasion.

No one was injured in the incident.

        In his own little world, yes…but isn’t that where most conservatives live? In their own little world, where social problems are based on race, the economic issues are easily solved, where your enemies and what’s wrong with Murica is gays, blacks, women, and people who can read? Best to just let them live there–they generally weed themselves out of the gene pool pretty quickly.

      Why do you assume there were drugs in the house? Oh, wait. You’re another one of those ignorant idiotic trolls who don’t have a life. Where are the hooded sheets in YOUR house?

        C’mon Annette , do the math the seventh biggest party weekend of the year more than halfway through the month,poor part of town. What do you think it was? It may not have been drugs but there’s something nefarious going on in that household. They should consider themselves lucky that everyone lived. A professional would have eliminated the liabilities.

    I would have never opened the door in the first place. If someone busts through my door, expect to read their obit.
