ROSWELL, Ga. - A Roswell woman is recounting a frightening hold-up outside her apartment and police are still searching for the two gunmen.
The victim took Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik through what she encountered this week at the Roswell Creek Apartments off Warsaw Road.
Roswell police said two masked men robbed the woman as she sat in her car. She’s still fearful and hopeful detectives catch her attackers.
“When I see people's like that, everything in black,” said Mayra Dominguez. “He said give me. I said, ‘OK, OK.’ Then he said, ‘Open.’ I opened and threw everything away to the floor.”
Dominguez said she just arrived home from work late Tuesday night and was texting on her phone when a masked man approached her car with a demand.
He said “’Give me all you have in the car. If you don't, I can shoot,’” Dominguez said. “I said, ‘No, no, please take everything. Take a bag.’ He said, ‘Give me your cellphone, too.’"
Then Dominguez said another masked gunman appeared. Luckily for Dominguez, a neighbor nearby heard her screams.
“My neighbor in the next car, he opened the door, and he said, 'What happened?' Then, it's almost scaring them, they going," Dominguez said.
Roswell police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said officers flooded the complex looking for the robbers.
"They fled on foot and all of our officers arrived, K-9 tracked the people, but they could have left in a car to a neighboring neighborhood,” Holland said.
Dominguez is just thankful she didn't end up hurt, or worse.
“It's very, very scary,” Dominguez said.
Adding insult to injury for Dominguez, she said the robbers later accessed her Facebook account from the stolen cellphone and posted crude things on there.
Police said they've been trying to track the cell phone but so far, haven't had any luck finding it.
