POLICE: Movers Rob Woman At Gunpoint

A Rocky Mount woman got more than she bargained for when she got two men to help her move -- the two are accused of robbing her at gunpoint and threatening to sexually assault her.

Police say it happened Thursday in the 300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue. The victim told police that Roderick Battle and Demetrius Sumlin were helping move the furniture out of her house.

The woman said when she noticed her two flat screen TVs, Playstation, washer and dryer sitting on the curb, she approached the two men. She said that's when Sumlin pulled out a handgun.

Police say the two men took the woman's belongings and left.

Both men were later caught and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.
