Gunmen confronted a man watching television in his north Bibb County home and kidnapped him Monday night, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Two men pointed their guns through the window about 8:30 p.m. and demanded the 29-year-old open the front door of the home in the Howard Oaks subdivision off Bass Road.

As the gunmen were starting to grab items in the house, the victim’s father awoke upstairs and called down for his son, who was forced to load a television into the robbers’ car.

Several items were noted in the sheriff’s office investigative report as missing from the Howard Oaks home, including several handguns, a laptop, a men’s wedding ring, two purses and an Xbox.

The gunmen forced the man into the car and drove him to an ATM in west Bibb County, where they withdrew an undisclosed amount of cash before dropping off the victim on Pio Nono Circle.

The man ran into the woods and later flagged down a Macon police officer.

The gunmen are described as black males in their 20s.

One is clean shaven, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, and was wearing a black beanie hat.

The other man, who was captured by bank surveillance cameras, is about 5 feet 5 inches tall, has facial hair and was last seen wearing a red beanie hat.

The victim was not able to give the make or model of the two-door car, but said it might have been red.
