(CNS): Police are investigating what appears to be the fifth armed robbery in as many days following the robbery of a loan business in Savannah on Friday night. At around 9 p.m., the JN Money Transfer office on Homestead Crescent was broken into by two masked men, one armed with a gun and the other with a knife, who demanded money. The men left on foot towards the back of the premises with an undisclosed sum of cash in an unknown direction, police said.
No shots were fired during the incident, but a man who was present at the scene was lightly injured, although police did not say how it happened. One of the robbers is said to be wearing a long-sleeved black shirt, blue jeans, and white sneakers; the other also wore white sneakers and blue jeans but wore a multicolored shirt.
This incident follows a series of street robberies and assaults by gunmen last week. The CNS learned that the armed robbery by the airport on Friday morning was also at a JN Money Transfer Office, housed in the car rental company opposite the airport. There was also two street muggings and one gas station robbery Last week.
