Augusta man robbed while sitting on porch



A man was robbed at gunpoint on his porch Saturday morning.

Antonio Ferguson of the 1700 block of Verdery Street said he was sitting on his porch around 3:30 a.m. when two men ran up to him and demanded he give them all his money, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

Ferguson said he fought with the men until one pulled out a handgun and instructed him to lie on the ground. Ferguson then went after the gun and the man struck him on the head with the pistol multiple times until the gun went off, the report said.

The men fled.

Ferguson was not shot, but was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital and had to get stitches for the wound on his head.
