Pub patrons robbed last night

Three people were robbed at gunpoint while leaving a local bar Thursday night.

One of the victims told police he was leaving Helga’s Pub and Grill on Central Avenue about 10:46 p.m. when they were approached by two men wearing black clothing with black scarves over their faces, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report.

When the robbers demanded their wallets, the victims attempted to get into their vehicle. It was then that one of the gun-wielding suspects pointed the weapon at the victim’s head and snatched their wallets and pocketbooks, the report said.

The theft occurred near the corner of Central Avenue and Russell Street.
