Augusta man says phone solicitor threatened him with death

A Hephzibah man told the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office a telephone solicitor argued with him and then threatened to have him killed.

According to an incident report, a woman had called the 33-year-old man’s phone several times pushing the phone service, which was not named in the report. This resulted in an argument during a conversation Monday afternoon.

The man told police the caller became insistent about the service before telling him in Spanish “I will send someone over to kill you.”
