NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Detectives are investigating after a woman was robbed in her own front yard in a New Hanover County neighborhood early Tuesday.

It happened just after 1 a.m. at 4878 Berkley Drive.  

Sheriff's deputies say Ravin Cook was leaving her home in Kings Grant when two men approached her in the driveway.

The first suspect waved a gun at Cook, and demanded her purse. Cook resisted, struggling with the man, until he struck her in the head.

Deputies say the second suspect then approached her and snatched her purse before they both fled the scene on foot.

After the victim refused EMS assistance, the Sheriff's Department K-9 followed the suspects' track before losing it.

One suspect is described as a male, wearing a black hoodie with skulls on it and a black mask. The other male is reported wearing lighter colored jeans, a black mask and gloves.

If you have any information about this robbery, call the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at 910-798-4161.

Maybe

Maybe this will teach her to stay in her house at 1am instead of being outside with hooligans.

This is the dumbest comment I've ever seen posted. Everyone should be able to go outside of their house whenever they want. No one should have to worry about being harmed...you're basically saying its her fault she got robbed because she went outside late at night. Jeez Louise..I feel sorry for you.

I AGREE WITH YOU 100% WHAT

I AGREE WITH YOU 100% WHAT IF YOU NEEDED TO GO OUT SIDE FOR SOME REASON AT NITE? DOES THAT MEAN YOU ARE HELD HOSTAGE IN YOUR OWN HOME? AND HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MORNING? DO YOU NOT GO OUTSIDE AFTER DARK? FOR ANYTHING?
