Martinez man reports robbery attempt

A 41-year-old Martinez man said two men attempted to rob him Friday night.

According to a Richmond County Sheriff's Office report, the victim was in his vehicle in the 600 block of Bohler Avenue about 10:45 p.m. talking on his cell phone.

Two men approached the driver's side, and one tapped his window with a handgun.

The other then opened the driver's door and began searching through the victim's pockets but didn't take anything. When the man with the handgun told the victim he was going to shoot him, he drove away.

The victim said the men were last seen running west on Fenwick Street. He didn't want to prosecute, according to the report.
