Twiggs County deputies are investigating a reported home invasion and attempted robbery Monday.
Chief Deputy Billy Boney said a Sgoda Road resident was treated and released from a hospital after receiving minor injuries. Boney said the woman reported being in her home about 8:30 a.m. Monday when a man entered it and physically assaulted her.
The man also began stacking items in the house, possibly to steal them.
Boney said deputies, State Patrol officers and a Department of Corrections K-9 unit searched the area where the woman said the man fled, and a Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime scene technician was called in.

The man is described as a white male of medium build, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, bald but with hair hanging over to the sides.
He was wearing blue jeans and a blue pullover sweatshirt.
