Man carjacked at Augusta Mall

A man loading his 2-year-old into a car Monday evening was carjacked in the Augusta Mall parking lot, a Richmond County Sheriff's Office report shows.

The man told a deputy that the carjacker approached him about 7 p.m. holding a gas can and asked for gas money. The father said he didn't have any cash, and the robber replied that he should "give him everything he had and to get into the car," a report states.

The father instead took the toddler out of the car and let the robber take the Cadillac CTS. The car was found later that night after two motorists on Interstate 520 noticed a fire at Bayvale Park in the 3400 block of Milledgeville Road. Deputies say the car had been set on fire and was a total loss.

The robber was described as black with a light
complexion, between 30 and 40 years old, about 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing a red-
hooded jacket or shirt, dark-colored pants and a black stocking cap.
