One woman awoke to a robber pointing a handgun at her face and ordering her to be quiet Monday morning on Yearwood Avenue, a Rutherford County sheriffâ€™s sergeant said.
The robber grabbed a laptop computer from the bedroom of Jade Lehman and fled from the home she shares with four other people, said Sgt. Derek Oeser. No one suffered physical injury.
Sheriffâ€™s deputies, MTSU Police and Murfreesboro Police set up a perimeter near the area to search for the suspect.
Sheriffâ€™s Sgt. David Foote and Deputy J.D. Davis of the Special Response Team worked with Deputy Josh Gregory and K-9 partner Balu, who tracked the suspect from the house off Old Woodbury Highway and onto MTSU campus where the track ended on Greenland Drive.
â€śThey stayed with the track and did a good job in tracking,â€ť Sgt. Oeser said.
Detective Phil Brooks said the suspect was described as a black man wearing black clothing and a black bandana over his face. He was of average build.
People who have information about the suspect are asked to call Detective Brooks at 904-3051.
