Woman asks Facebook friends to report her robbery
CHATTANOOGA, TN -- A Tennessee woman has found a unique use for her Facebook account: reporting a robbery.
Chattanooga Police said 20-year-old Rolanda Hill answered a knock at her door Sunday night and a man stuck a gun through the open door and forced his way inside. He demanded money while holding Hill at gunpoint and took cash and her cell phone.
Deprived of her phone, Hill used her computer to report the crime to her Facebook friends and asked them to call police. Someone did and police responded at about 9:30 p.m.
Police are following up leads, but there was no immediate arrest in the robbery.
