LILBURN, Ga. -

Police are investigating after a man was robbed in his driveway, the second such crime in the Atlanta suburb of Lilburn in less than two months.

In the latest driveway robbery, a 54-year-old man arrived at his home in Lilburn around 11:30 p.m. Jan. 9 and was attacked and robbed by two masked men.

The victim told police that one of the men grabbed his arm while the other hit him on the head with a pole or stick. They took his keys and wallet.

The Gwinnett Daily Post reports (http://bit.ly/RYw71j) that it was the second driveway robbery in Lilburn in recent months. On Nov. 28, another man arrived home and was approached by a man, who robbed him and shot him once in the buttocks.
