Woman arrested after armed robbery

An Augusta woman is accused of armed robbery after a man had two cellphones and his pants stolen early Sunday, police say.

 

Jasmine Green, 20, of Clark Street, is charged with felony armed robbery, according to Richmond County jail records.

Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to Krystal’s at 2537 Peach Or­chard Road about 5 a.m., according to an incident report.

Flenoise Luckie, 19, told police he was walking on Peach Orchard when a black Dodge Neon with chrome rims cut him off. Inside were two black males and two black females, and one of the males got out and brandished a handgun.

The gunman told Luckie to remove his shoes and pants, which contained $25 and the two phones. After Luckie ran off, the gunman fired one shot before leaving in the vehicle.

Deputies found the vehicle with a flat tire about three hours later while on patrol. The car’s owner, Jo­seph Green, told police that his daughter called him about the flat tire about 5:30 a.m. Green’s wife and daughter were picked up by deputies to be interviewed.
