Family dog saves owners from would-be robber

RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Rankin County deputies are searching for a man who attempted to rob a woman at her home Tuesday night. 

Rankin County Chief Investigator Raymond Duke said deputies, with the help of Metro One, searched much of Tuesday for the suspect. 

Chief Duke said the unidentified woman owns a business that was recently robbed. 

Duke said when the woman and her 13-year-old son were returning to their home, in the Bridlewood Subdivision, and pulling into their garage a man approached them with a handgun.

Luckily, the family's dog scared the man off.

The suspect is described as a black male, who was dressed in dark clothing with his face covered.

Chief Duke said the attempted robbery may be connected to the burglary of the woman's business.
