      The Albany Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that happened early Saturday morning on Pleasant Hill Court.

      James Law told officers he was sitting on his porch around midnight on Saturday when two men he didn't know approached him and told him to hand over his Droid RAZR phone.

      Law said the men tried to push him inside his home and hit him on the forehead with a silver handgun before he yelled for help, causing them to flee.

      A neighbor says the men ran in opposite directions and tried to fire the gun in the air but it would not go off.

      If you have any information on this case, contact the Albany Police Department or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS, that's 229-436-8477.
