An unidentified occupant at a Mystic Drive address in Greensboro answered the door in the early morning hours of March 17 when two black females and three black males forced their way in, police said. The quintet reportedly asked to see a man who was not there, and then grabbed the occupant’s brother, took him outside and administered a beating with his fists. The five robbed everybody in the apartment and fled. That apparently wasn’t enough. They came back again and stole a silver Grand Prix with keys they took from one of the victims. The man who was beaten was taken to Moses Cone hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 336.373.1000.
