Authorities say two men broke into a Jamestown Square apartment on Thursday morning, threatened a woman at gunpoint and then fled with several items.
Fred Shelton, the interim chief with the Columbus Police Department, told The Dispatch the incident occurred just before 11 a.m. at the apartment on Forrest Boulevard.
The victim told police the two suspects broke into her home through the back door. The victim came downstairs and apparently surprised the suspects, who brandished a gun and forced her into another room before taking several items and leaving, according to Shelton.
The woman was not injured.
The suspects are described as thin, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall. One wore a black mask and gloves. The other had a camouflage book bag, according to authorities.
Shelton said police do not believe this robbery is connected to any other robberies that have taken place in Columbus in the past weeks.
