Check out "When Ramsey broke free of the bathroom he apparently ran to his gun vault and picked up a shotgun" ============================================================== http://www.channel2000.com/sh/news/stories/nat-news-47858920010220-110210.html Channel2000.com - John Ramsey Locked Up During Botched Robbery Atlanta Police Investigating At Scene ATLANTA, 2:21 p.m. EST February 20, 2001 -- According to police, the Atlanta home of John and Patsy Ramsey was broken into Tuesday morning. A man who identified himself as John Ramsey called 911 at about 11:12 a.m., EST and said that he had scuffled with a 6-foot "tall black man" in dark clothing during a robbery at his house. According to Atlanta police spokesman John Quigley, the alleged robber fled the scene in a grey Chevy Cavalier. Police were at the home, located at 4070 Paces Ferry Road , talking to Ramsey about the incident. Ramsey told investigators that when he returned to his house from Home Depot around 11 a.m., he found a man going down the stairs with two suitcases in hand. When Ramsey asked him what he was doing, the alleged intruder said that he was completing home renovations. Ramsey said that he did not believe him and when he attempted to call police, he was attacked. Atlanta police Lt. Michael Fuller told reporters that Ramsey was choked, scratched and then subdued. The robber allegedly forced Ramsey into a bathroom, tied the door from the outside, and continued to ransack the house. When Ramsey broke free of the bathroom he apparently ran to his gun vault and picked up a shotgun Other than receiving several scratches on his face and bruises on his neck, Ramsey was unharmed. The alleged robber fled the house with two suitcases. Guns and other valuables were believed to have been stolen. Police continued to search for the intruder. Patsy Ramsey returned to their home, located in the suburb of Vinings, Ga., at about one hour after the alleged robbery occurred. She had apparently returned from Bible study. The Ramseys have been under suspicion since their 6-year-old daughter JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in their Boulder, Colo., home on December 26, 1996. The couple insist that they're innocent and claim that an intruder is responsible. A year-long probe into the murder of the child beauty queen led to no indictment and no arrests. The Ramseys moved to their two-story Mediterranean-style Atlanta home after the slaying. John Ramsey told police Tuesday morning that he is unsure whether the alleged robber knew the identity of the homeowners. Additional Resources: Copyright 2001 by Channel 2000. All rights reserved.
