Augusta man robbed after being taken to house

An Augusta man said he was robbed after an acquaintance drove him to an unknown house Saturday morning.

Joshua Carter, 23, of Sand Bar Ferry Road, said he was walking to work when he stopped at the Circle K gas station on Laney-Walker Boulevard and met with a man who goes by the name “Dirt,” a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report said.

The man offered to drive Carter to work, but instead drove him to a house on 12th Street. Carter said he followed the man into the house and was attacked by two or three unknown men. The men stole Carter’s diamond ring, valued at $185, and more than $300 in cash before leaving the scene.

“Dirt” is described as being more than 6 feet tall with short hair and scars on the back of his head. He is also missing three teeth. He was last seen wearing a white tank top, blue jeans and blue Nike shoes.
