Augusta man robbed in Checkers parking lot


An Augusta man says he was robbed at gunpoint as he sat in his car at a Checkers in Hephzibah on Friday evening.

Raven Thompson, 22, said he was sitting in the parking lot at 3554 Windsor Spring Road about 6 p.m. when an unknown black male approached on the driver’s side and started talking to him, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

Thompson said his wallet was on the passenger seat in clear view, and less than a minute into the conversation the man brandished a black handgun and demanded Thompson give him the money in the wallet.

After handing over the money, Thompson said the man, who wore all black, fled toward Tobacco Road.
