Channel 2's Darryn Moore reports.

Police are looking for a man accused of breaking into two northwest Atlanta homes and pointing an assault rifle at a woman in one of the homes.

“He told me to lie down on the bed and put my face in the pillow,” Barbara Lyles-Anderson told Channel 2 Action News. “And I thought then he was going to rape me and shoot me in the back of the head.”

He instead demanded jewelry and cash while pointing a gun at her head, she said.

Lyles-Anderson was home just before lunchtime Friday and was only wearing a nightgown at the time of the robbery, the television station reported.

She said the man ultimately got away with thousands of dollars worth of items.

“I’m just fortunate I’m OK,” she said. “Those are material things.”

Police received nanny cam video of the man involved in another robbery about four miles away from Lyles-Anderson’s home. The owners weren’t home.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
