Augusta woman robbed at gunpoint

Deputies are searching for a black male following an armed robbery at an Augusta business.

On Tuesday, a female victim filed a report with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office saying she was robbed at gunpoint inside The Hair Boutique on the 2300 block of Lumpkin Road on June 28.

The woman told deputies that suspect Antonio Wright entered the store asking for something to drink. When the victim told Wright there was nothing for him, the suspect pointed a handgun at her and said “give it up,” according to a RCSO incident report.

The victim stated that she gave the suspect her purse, containing money, her license and other items.

The woman said she waited more than a month to file the report because she was “scared at the time because the suspect had all her information,” the report said.

Wright is described as 23 years old, 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds.
