An Augusta man was beaten and robbed by six unknown men near the T.W. Josey High School football stadium Thursday night, police say.
About 8 p.m., Martece Birckhead, 25, was leaving work when he was confronted by six black males on Essie McIntyre Boulevard, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.
According to the report, one of the men asked Birckhead for money. When Birckhead said he didn’t have any, another man brandished a handgun and demanded money.
The other five men began to kick and punch Birckhead until he fell to the ground. They took $45 from his wallet before fleeing toward Olive Road.
Deputies searched the area but were unable to find anybody that matched the description that the victim gave.
