THOMASVILLE — A Thomasville man was robbed at gunpoint at his home while a female accomplice stole items from the victim's vehicle, according to a Thomasville Police Department detective.

The victim and woman, Katrina Sapp, were talking in the victim's carport late Wednesday afternoon, when the victim was approached from behind by a man.

"The man put his arm around his throat and shoved a firearm in his side," said Sgt. Scott Newberry, assistant commander of the TPD criminal Investigations Division.

The robber took the man's cell phone.

"The friend went to his car and took a backpack and his wallet," said TPD detective Chris Baggett.

The backpack contained miscellaneous items and loose change.

The man and woman left the residence. A short time later, police found the woman at her 611 N. Blvd. residence.

"The victim knew the female," Newberry said. "He was unable to identify the male, because he was wearing a hoodie and mask."

Sapp, 31, is charged with armed robbery and entering auto.
