Man nearly robbed outside his Sturbridge apartment

Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - An East Montgomery man opens his door only to be robbed at gunpoint. The crime, and others like it, are cause for concern.

It was just a usual Friday night for Mike Grandalski. He had just returned back from walking his dog.

Shortly after, the longtime Montgomery resident found himself and his apartment in the middle of a crime scene.

"I heard a knock at the door. So, being a man, I just assumed it was either my daughter or her daughter or somebody that we knew, so I didn't look out the peephole," stated Grandalski.

When he opened the door a man in a ski mask approached him.

"It was one of those black hooded ski masks with just the eyes and the mouth cut out...and he was asking for a light for his cigarettes," recalls Grandalski.

Before Grandalski could process what was going on, another man came from behind the corner. They pointed the gun at him and screamed at him while demanding money.

After they frisked him and realized he didn't have any money the two men bolted, but not before smacking Grandalski in the head with the gun.

Grandalski received a pretty good sized knot on his head and a slight laceration from the incident.

Police don't have any suspects in connection with the robbery attempt but they do advise people to use a heightened state of common sense. Be alert, know your surroundings and call police if you see anything suspicious.
