2 men held up at gunpoint in Augusta

Two men were held up at gunpoint Wednesday after refusing to give two other men a ride, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s office report.

About 1:10 p.m., the victims said two men approached them in the parking lot of China Express II and Subway, 1326 Peach Orchard Road, and asked for a ride.

When the victims denied the ride, the two suspects each pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and said, “Do you know what time it is?”

The victims ran away and the suspects fled south toward the Lowe’s shopping center at Windsor Spring and Peach Orchard roads. Nothing was taken from the victims.

The suspects are described as black males in their 20s. One man was wearing all black, had scruffy facial hair and stood 6 feet, 2 inches tall. The second man, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, was wearing a tan shirt, blue jeans and a blue fishing hat.
