Report: Woman held at gunpoint in Johnson City home invasion, cash stolen from bedroom

A Johnson City woman was held at gunpoint while her apartment was burglarized Tuesday, according to a police report.
Johnson City police said Kayla B. Hodge, 21, 404 W. Maple St., Apt. 1, told a police officer that around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday she was in her upstairs bedroom when she heard someone downstairs.
She went downstairs and saw two men she did not recognize, one of whom pulled out a gun and ordered her back upstairs.
Hodge was told to lie on the floor while the men searched her room.
The men eventually went back downstairs and told Hodge to sit on the couch as they argued, according to the report. The nature of the argument was not included in the report.
The men then left Hodge’s apartment with her cell phone but she followed them out and demanded her phone be returned, and it was.
As Hodge was walking back inside, she reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot.
Hodge then called her boyfriend, identified in the report as 22-year-old Frank Haws. Haws got to the apartment and she told him everything that happened then called police.
Haws told police he was missing $600 that was in a dresser in the upstairs bedroom.
Hodge and Haws said they did not think anything else was missing; however, some cases and a video game system were also listed as stolen in the report.
Hodge described the men who robbed her as black. One man had dreadlocks and the other was bald. No other description was provided.
