Augusta man robbed at gunpoint, stripped of clothing

Police say an Augusta man was held at gunpoint and robbed of his clothing late Friday.

About 10:40 p.m., Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s deputies were sent to the 1500 block of Picquet Ave­nue, where the victim said he was approached by two black males in ski masks and black clothing who demanded he “give it up,” according to an incident report.

When the victim asked what they meant, one of the men struck him in the head with a handgun and demanded he take off all of his clothes. When he didn’t move fast enough, the second man hit him twice in the head with his handgun, according to the report.

The men took $450 in clothing, two sets of keys and $400 in cash. They were last seen running north toward Parks Avenue.
