A woman was held at gunpoint early Sunday morning in the parking lot of Bussey Auto Glass on Gordon Highway.



The woman, 25, told deputies that she had met a man at Cloud 9 Bar at 3156 Wrightsboro Road and asked for a ride to the Scottish Inn around 2 a.m., according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

She said the man pulled into the parking lot of Bussey Auto Glass and tried to pull her from the truck. He then pulled out a black semiautomatic handgun and held it to her head. He told her to get out, took her purse and drove away, the report said.

The man was last seen driving eastbound on Gordon Highway in a silver pickup truck.

This woman was luckier than someone holding an ace and a king at the blackjack table. I hope she learned something too, Willow.

Yea, don't be hanging out at bars to 2am without a ride. She was REAL lucky he didn't take more than her purse.

The whole story begs some questions Sean won't allow to be asked.

She was looking right at him

She was looking right at him yet there is no description.
Bar fly's are folk who have to pay others just to hang out with them. Getting a ride with these social outcast can be very dangerous.
