Mildred Harris, 70, of 2207 George Street was taking her garbage outside around 10 p.m. Thursday when two teen males approached and forced her back into the house.
She was thrown to the floor. "They said the wanted money," said Columbus Police Lt. Mark D. Starling. She had little to offer.
"While one searched the house," said Starling, "the other held her to the floor with his foot on her back."
Nothing was taken.
Columbus police are investigating.
