A man is in police custody after he attempted to rob a woman outside her home around noon Wednesday.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier, a 24-year-old woman was putting her 2-year-old inside her vehicle on the 1600 Pendleton Road when a man later identified as Nathaniel Leverett, 44, approached the vehicle asking for money.

The woman told authorities she said she didn’t have any money so he asked to do yard work in exchange for money. She also replied no.

At that point, Leverett grabbed the woman’s arm pulling her back from the vehicle and told her he knew she had money, Carrier said.

The woman was able to get away and notify police.

Leverett has been charged with felony criminal attempt and terroristic acts and threats.

Carrier said Leverett has a history of robberies.

Back into the revolving door

Back into the revolving door and soon to be out to rob again.

Augusta pays a bunch of folks over $10,000 per month and WAY overpaid for the TEE center, and almost everything else, for WHAT? They can't answer that. This money should be going to our cops, not fat cats getting fatter giving away our Tee center and ripping Augusta for twice what they're worth.
