KINGSPORT — Sheriff's deputies are investigating a Monday night robbery at a Kingsport home, where the 66-year-old resident was allegedly knocked to the ground and covered with a curtain.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:20 p.m. at 3301 Princeton Road. According to an incident report at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, a neighbor of the victim called 911 after seeing a woman and two men run from the residence, enter a dark colored car and flee at a high rate of speed.

The resident told responding officers that a woman had knocked on the door and asked to use his phone. While she was on the phone two males allegedly walked into his home, with one asking to use his restroom.
