Investigators Looking For Leads In Violent Home Invasion In Anderson

Posted: Updated:

Armed and Dangerous and on the loose. Police tell us three men responsible for a violent home invasion are still on the run.

It happened at a home on East Orr Street in Anderson.

Anthony Taylor is good friends with the family at the center of a violent home invasion. 

"I heard about crazy stuff but I never witnessed it happen to someone I know," Taylor said. 

According to police three men actually kicked down the front door then held a 13 year old at gunpoint.

The teen was forced to lie on the ground with a gun to the back of his head while three strangers robbed his house.

The Williams family didn't want to speak on camera, but told me the 13 year old was terrified.

Police tell us the teenager didn't get a good look at the crooks, he was only able to identify them as three tall black men wearing dark clothing, armed with what looked like a small black revolver.  

"I wouldn't know what would be going threw my head if someone held me at gunpoint," Taylor said.

The crooks got away with electronics including a TV and a computer.

Police think they are still in the Anderson area and should be considered dangerous.

"It happened to someone I know..something like that's crazy," Taylor said.

Taylor wants these men behind bars for what they did to his 13 year old family friend. 

"The same way it happened to his family it could happen to mine," Taylor said.

    Duke Energy says that removing all of the company's coal ash away from North Carolina's rivers and lakes would take decades and cost up to $10 billion, with the state's electricity customers likely footing nearly all the bill. Duke's North Carolina president Paul Newton told state lawmakers Tuesday the company needs flexibility to consider more cost-efficient options that include leaving much of its 100 million tons of toxic ash in place after being covered with giant tarps and soil.
