AUGUSTA, Ga.---The Richmond County Sheriff's Office has released new information about items a rapist stole from his victim's Summerville home.

A 74-year-old woman was raped and robbed five days ago on Walton Way near Augusta State University. Investigators say the man followed her as she came home from walking her dog, forced her into her apartment, then raped and robbed her.

Several unique jewelry items were stolen from the victim's home, including a charm bracelet with charms of a gold runner, a bicycle with green and gold wheels, and a gold Nefertiti.

Also stolen was a gold flip pocket watch made by Elgin, 100 to 150 years old, with an illegible monogram on the lid.

Investigators say the man also stole a Yellow Dog Democrat lapel pin and a University of Georgia College of Pharmacy lapel pin with red, black, and gold trim.
