Augusta teenager robbed, stripped of his clothes in Meadowbrook

A teenager was robbed and stripped of his clothes while he was running in a park in Augusta’s Meadowbrook section Monday afternoon, police said.

The 16-year-old told deputies he was in the park at the end of Meadowlark Road when he saw two men take his bag and walk behind the rest rooms.

The teen said when he went to confront the men, one showed him a black gun and the other hit him with what appeared to be brass knuckles. The men then stripped the boy of his shorts and shirt, and took them along with his cellphone, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

The boy said one of the men was wearing a black ski mask, camouflage jacket, dark pants and white athletic shoes. The second was also in a camouflage jacket, with dark pants and black shoes.
