Armed man robs newspaper vendor

A newspaper vendor was robbed around noon Sunday on the 2300 block of Windsor Spring Road.

The victim told a Richmond County deputy that he was approached by the robber, who pointed a knife at his chest and demanded money.

When the vendor refused to hand over any money, the robber pulled up his shirt and revealed a pistol, saying, “Are you sure about that?”

The robber then grabbed cash and ran away on foot. A report describes the robber as a black male with buck teeth, about 5-foot-11, wearing a white, black and green jacket, black pants and a white T-shirt. He was carrying a black-handled kitchen knife and a black small caliber pistol.
