September 29, 2011

A woman was robbed at gunpoint by two masked men who broke into her home Wednesday evening on Williamsport Pike, the Berkeley County (W.Va.) Sheriff’s Office said.

Two men wearing ski masks broke into the home at about 6:40 p.m. and shoved a black handgun in the woman’s face, according to a sheriff’s office news release. The men stole the woman’s purse and fled through the woods south of the residence to an awaiting vehicle.

Deputies said they found the vehicle and were in the process of obtaining warrants.

Neither the victim’s name nor the address of the home was released.
