Girl arrives home from school to find 2 armed men

A student coming home from school Monday afternoon walked in on two armed men inside her north Fayette home, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.

The juvenile called 911 alleging that when she entered the home in the Ponderosa subdivision she was confronted by two unknown black males wearing blue hats, with blue bandanas covering the lower part of their faces, officials said.

The duo was armed with a handgun, officials said.

Deputies responded to the scene around 5 p.m. to the home on Devilla Trace which is located off Banks Road near the Fayetteville city limits.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office general tip line at 770-716-4750.

This place gets more frightening to live in every single week I read the paper. That whole area where this happened has gone down hill so darned fast. North Fayette County may as well be given go to Riverdale at this point...put a fence up along HY 54.
