Tyler Strudgeon, a junior at Georgia Southern University, says he was asleep in his Robinhood Trail home when he was brutally attacked early Sunday morning."The next thing I know, I'm on the floor and I'm getting beaten pretty much by guns," said Tyler.
Tyler says two unknown men kicked in his door. Over the course of the next two hours, he says he was beaten, robbed, kidnapped and held at gunpoint.
"I was pretty out of it. I lost a lot of blood at that point," he said. "They found everything they wanted to. If not, they beat it out of me."
Tyler says the men stole his laptop, phone, wallet and watches. But, that's not all they wanted.
"They had me drive my car to the ATM, where they pulled the rest of my money out of my bank account and continue to drive after that," he said.
Tyler says he was forced to drive from an ATM on Lanier Drive to the woods next to a nearby apartment complex.
"They took me in the woods and told me that they were going to kill me now," he said.
The start of this armed robbery took place directly across the street from Georgia Southern's campus, yet students weren't notified about it with an emergency Eagle Alert.
The school says it did post online what it calls a "timely warning" about the armed robbery. But, in a statement to FOX 28 News, Georgia Southern said it didn't send out an emergency notification for the following reason:
"Taking into account all of the known facts and circumstances, it was determined by law enforcement officials that there was not an immediate threat."

Isn't that sweet? Both of them 23, so young and full of dreams and turning their life around when they had this one little bump in the road. Oh well, I guess there's a prison somewhere to give them plenty of time to sort things out.

And to the victim: Tyler, do a little research in making your doors harder to kick in - that can buy you enough time to get to your guns (once you get some) if it happens again. I'm sure you would rather they had lost some blood instead of you, no?

It was his neighbor? Wow. What was the plan? Hey, I have a plan! Let's rob and kidnap this person who sees me every day, knows what I look like, and can identify me to the police!

Oh, that was the plan. Good thing they did not have the nerve to pull the trigger once the victim started praying out loud.

It's Sunday morning. Passed out and hungover is no way to be on the alert for robbers, college boy, nor is it a condition in which you should want to meet your Maker.
