A blind man was robbed in his home Augusta Monday afternoon, police said.

A 49-year-old man told deputies a man named “Bo” and another man came to his home in the 1700 block of Champagne Avenue around 3 p.m., according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

He said that because he is blind, the men took his wallet, a Dell laptop docking station and $325 from his house while he was there.

Whatever became of neighbors

Whatever became of neighbors HELPING one another and looking out for those with disabilities instead of looking for victims? Catch the toad suckers and put 'em on a chain gang breaking rock!

I like your way of thinking TheGeorgian, but this bleeding heart justice system we have will never allow real punishment or deterrence for criminals. They will have a short stay, if that, with cable, snacks, their buddies, sports, cards, phone, drugs, visitation etc...... even if they have multiple priors, even violent ones!!!! Then be let out to victimize someone else.
