Man robbed at car wash

NORTH AUGUSTA -- A North Augusta man was robbed at gunpoint at an area car wash Thursday.

The man told police that at about 10:40 p.m., he was vacuuming his car at the National Pride Car Wash at the corner of Martintown and Atomic roads when he was approached by two black men wearing black clothing and black bandanas over their faces.

One of the men pointed a revolver at his face and said, “Give me what you’ve got,” according to a police report.

The 19-year-old victim threw his wallet on the ground. One of the suspects picked it up, and both suspects fled south on Martintown Road in a black Ford Taurus.

The victim described one of the men as having a low hair cut and being thin in stature. The second suspect had a Mohawk hairstyle and a thin build and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.
