A Jonesboro (Georgia) woman was robbed at gunpoint outside of her home early Tuesday morning after returning from Best Buy with a newly purchased Xbox 360. Patsy Springer, a 53-year-old widow, had waited nearly nine hours to secure her son's coveted Christmas gift.
When Springer reached her home she was approached by a man who pointed a gun at her face and grabbed the shopping bag containing the Xbox 360 and additional accessories & software (valued at roughly $600). The man then fled to his car, at which point Springer attempted to pursue him in her own car—she eventually gave up. The attacker likely followed Springer from the Best Buy parking lot.
One report suggests that Jonesboro police partially identified a suspect after reviewing several Best Buy security tapes, but when they requested to see additional tapes, they were told, due to technical difficulties, the tapes were not viewable.
