Man carjacked in fast food drive-through

Police are investigating a carjacking Sunday morning in a south Augusta fast-food drive-through line.


According to a news release, Steven Earl Bellamy, 23, was in the drive-through at McDonald’s, 3132 Peach Orchard Road, about 2:30 a.m. when a man approached the open vehicle window with a knife. The motorist told police the robber told him several times to get out of the vehicle and then tried to stab him in the face as he tried to roll up the window.

The man, who was dressed in a gray hoodie and skull cap, then opened the door of the 1997 Ford Mustang and demanded the driver get out. Police said the driver got out of the vehicle, which rolled across the parking lot. Witnesses told police the bandit chased after the car, got inside and drove away.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said the stolen vehicle was recovered that afternoon in the 3500 block of Brockdale Drive in Pepperidge subdivision.

No arrest has been made.
