Mother robbed at gunpoint in her garage

DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A DeKalb County mother of two said she was pulling into her garage on Monday night, when a man walked in, held her up at gunpoint and made off with her purse and phone.

DeKalb County police arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the crime, and are still looking for others who may have been involved.

Stephanie Brown said she was just about to take her 3-year-old son, Antonio, out of the car when she was approached.

"I'm standing right here where I'm at right now and here comes this guy with a gun like this saying, 'Give it up,'" Brown explained. "He was pretty confident with it, like he's done it before. I didn't think he was 14, he looked like a grown man."

Brown spoke exclusively to CBS Atlanta because she wanted other families to be on high alert.

"I want everybody to be aware of their surroundings, if you're coming into your garage, make sure your garage is down first," Brown said.
