A man reported a home invasion occurred at his Redbank Road residence at about 3:30 p.m. on April 29.
The complainant said he and the other two victims were sitting in the residence with the doors and windows open due to the heat, according to a Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office report.
Victim one said he was sitting in the dining room on the computer as victims two and three were in the living room playing video games.
Victim one said that’s when a black man in a black ski mask and red shirt entered through the sliding glass door with a semi-automatic pistol, according to the report.
Victim one said the robber forced him into the living room at gunpoint with the other two victims. The suspect produced a backpack and told victims two and three to put the Xbox and its controllers into the bag.
The suspect then demanded medicine. The victim said all he had was diabetes medicine. The suspect picked up a medicine bottle, read the label and set it back down.
The suspect then picked through several Xbox games, reading the labels and taking what he wanted, according to the report.
It was reported that $691 in money and computer hardware was missing.
