Man knocked unconscious, robbed outside lounge

An Augusta man says he was robbed early Saturday after he was knocked unconscious in the parking lot of Blue Top Lounge.

Stephen Allen, 40, said he was walking to his car, which was parked at the lounge at 1241 Steiner Ave., when he was approached from behind by four black males, according to Richmond County police report.

When Allen turned to face the men, one struck him above the right eye with the butt of an assault rifle, knocking him out. The men then stole $116 from Allen, according to the report.

After regaining consciousness, Allen said, he drove to his girlfriend’s house, who took him to Trinity Hospital.

Police say Allen’s left eye was swollen shut and that he suffered a laceration above his right eye. His bottom lip was swollen with abrasions.
