AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Investigators need your help finding two men that they say duct-taped an elderly woman and then robbed her.

The two black males walked into the Bransford Townhomes office and demanded cash from the 69-year-old employee on Monday afternoon.

The employee says one of the men took a pistol out of his waistband and pointed it at her. She says when she told them she didn't have any money, they put her in a chair and taped her legs, arms and mouth. They ransacked the office before leaving.

The woman was able to hop to the window and see the two men get into a white car.

Investigators don't have a lot to go on because they say one of the men was wearing a wig and the other had a white cloth over his face.

If you have any information on this incident, call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
