An Augusta man accused of attempted robbery was booked in to the Richmond County jail Friday.
Clyde Durant Adams, 22, of East Hale Street, was arrested about 3:40 p.m. on charges of attempted armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer.
About noon, Adams approached a man on Second Street. Adams brandished a revolver and told Dunbar to hand over everything he had, an incident report said.
When the man said he didn’t have anything, Adams fled the scene and was later found at Telfair and Forsythe streets, the report said.
Adams told authorities that he did not have a gun, but instead had a pole in his hand, the report said. Adams also said he was going to fight the victim, not rob him.
Last year, Adams was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and a misdemeanor count of simple battery.
