A 15-year-old boy said someone stole his fart machine while he was using it at the Augusta Mall, police said.
The boy said he was walking around the mall with some friends around 7:15 p.m. Saturday, setting off his fart machine by different people and groups, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.
After using the machine on one man, the man became upset and took the fart machine away, which he valued at $20. After taking the machine, the man struck the boy in the back of the head with his hand in an “aggressive manner,” the report says.
The boy was picked up by his grandmother a short time later.
