The search continues Tuesday for two armed and dangerous men in Chatham County.

The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department says they are looking for two men who forced their way into a home off Brown Thrush Road in the Henderson Golf Community. Held the homeowner at gunpoint and robbed him.

But police tell us there have been four other burglaries on that road in the last six months as well.

Police say they attended a Henderson neighborhood meeting last Thursday and they are upping their police presence in the area.

One of the recent home invasions happened a week ago. Police say in the middle of the afternoon, two men broke into a home, held the homeowner at gunpoint and stole valuables.

Thankfully, no one was physically hurt.

One resident WTOC spoke with Tuesday said he's very concerned for the safety of the neighborhood. He's even been checking in with other residents, making sure they know to be aware and on the lookout for anything suspicious.

"I've lived here about 15 years and it's pretty scary whenever some people come up to your house mid-daylight, and they're holding you up at gunpoint. I've been walking around asking neighbors if they've heard of anything. A lot of the neighbors haven't even heard yet. So I was trying to spread the word myself,” said Ryan Beebe, resident. "Every time I pull out of my house now there's cops everywhere in the neighborhood and stuff and it makes you kind of feel safe but you never know when this stuff is going to happen." 

Again, both men are on the run right now and are believed to be armed and dangerous.

Police say they may have made off in a green extended cab Chevy Silverado Z71 with a silver or gray stripe at the bottom. A photo of a similar vehicle is attached, along with a sketch of one of the gunmen. 

Both suspects are described as black males with dark complexions. Police say the suspect depicted in the sketch may be in his early 30s, tall, with a medium to stocky build and possibly a thin mustache. They say the second suspect may be a teenager.
