Sleeping victims wake up to robbery | Crime
COLUMBUS, GA - Three men awoke to a break in at their Benning Rd. home early Saturday morning.

The suspects entered the home and kicked in the bedroom door where one of the men was sleeping.
The robber told the victim, "Give me your money!"
The now awake man gave the suspect his wallet. The suspect opened it up and stole $400, then threw the wallet on the ground.
