AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A pair of men broke into a home, pistol-whipped another man and put a woman in the bathroom while demanding money on Friday, a Richmond County Sheriff's Office report said.

A man said he heard someone knock on his front door just after 11 p.m. When he opened it, two men were there asking to buy weed, the report said. When the homeowner said he didn't sell weed asking them to leave, one of the suspects pointed what's believed to be a .380 caliber pistol at his chest and told him to get on the floor.

The report said the man was then pistol-whipped while the suspects were demanding money. One of the men went into the bedroom, found the woman and told her to put a blanket over her face, moved her into the bathroom and shut the door, the report said.

The victim said the men stole about $200 from their home.
