NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A home invasion has stunned a south Nashville neighborhood after a mother was robbed while changing her baby's diaper.
The attack happened to 28-year-old Rosalia Garcia Sunday morning on Cedar Drive. The robbers tied her up and threatened to kill her 3-month-old daughter if she didn't give them her money.
It was all she had.
Neighbors felt bad about what happened, so they collected money and bought Garcia flowers and a bag filled with baby supplies.
"What they got was money for their baby's diapers, so there's a guy down the street that came over last night with some diapers and we got her some flowers and some diapers just to kind of help out and let her know that we're here for her if she ever needs anything," said neighbor Loretta Mansfield.
Metro police said they did not get a good description of the two men who attacked Garcia. She speaks very little English.
Through an interpreter she told neighbors the robbers surprised her from behind. They covered her eyes so she didn't get a good look at them.
