A Franklin woman was held at gunpoint and assaulted during a robbery at her home Monday night.
The Franklin Police Department says it responded to the robbery in the 4000 Block of Fairoaks Court just before 11 p.m.
The suspects were said to be two black males in their late teens that were short and thin in stature. One of the suspects had a hood partially covering his face while the other had a mask that only covered the top portion of his face. One of the suspects wore a black, Victoria Secret zip up jacket that had a rhinestone heart and a red, pink and yellow rainbow type design on the back.
Police say the suspects broke into the home through the back door and demanded money. One suspect struck the victim and threatened her life and the lives of her children who were in the home. They then forced her into her garage and told her to stay there until they were gone. After the victim was sure the suspects were gone, she took the children to a neighbor's home and called police. The suspects made off with a laptop computer, a cell phone and a set of high-end headphones. It is unknown if the criminals used a vehicle during the crime.
Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call the Franklin Police Department.
