Arby's on Washington Road robbed

  • Follow Crime & courts

Two men robbed the Arby’s in the 2700 block of Washington Road on Wednesday afternoon, according to a report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

The men entered the restaurant, one wearing a black mask and carrying a black pistol. They held four employees at gunpoint, identified the manager and forced her to open both the register and the safe, which they emptied.

The robbers then ran away from the restaurant.

The suspects were described as two black men in their 20s. The taller of the two, estimated to be 6 feet, 2 inches, has a cross tattooed on his left arm.

A cross as a permanent adornment

and this slime mold doesn't have the decency to at least cover it up as he robs innocent, low-wage workers at gunpoint! What a freakin' hero!

I can hardly wait till these two fungi are captured.

Buffer control

It's certainly good that this isn't Masters Week. The buffer zone isn't working yet and the creep keeps oozing northward and westward.

Best on that Part of Washington Rd.

That Arby's is the best fast food restaurant on that whole section of Washington Rd. Sorry to hear the robbers hit it.

AC, quit calling them

AC, quit calling them men.They may be males but they are not men. Men WORK for a living. Men have enough intelligence to make a living without thieving. These are low down skank punks. These punks are so low they should slither around on their belly like worms. I would have said snakes but I did not want to insult the snakes. Snakes are more important and more valuable to nature than these punks. You can call these two males, or boys, or punks, or thugs, or thieves, but these two are not and never will be MEN.

The thuggies are getting restless around here. More and more broad daylight robberies. The cheerleaders can throw out all of the bogus statistics they want to about crime going down.... but I'm telling you that your chances of getting caught in the middle of a holdup or shootout anywhere in Augusta/RC are going up.......no matter WHAT time of the day or night you go out and no matter where you go. Downtown for an evening out....get shot. Washington Rd for a sandwich.......get caught up in a robbery. Diamond Lakes to meet someone......get robbed and beaten. The inmates are in charge of the asylum in RC so watch you back everywhere you go.

There are Two Arby's on Washington Rd. Would help to also include Augusta or Evans in the location description.

Trash

These two are no more than common trash. Entitlement mentality leads them to believe that they deserve that money that someone else worked for. Hope they get caught soon before they do it again if they haven't already. I also wonder how much they got away with. @augustaresident:)

If I were a bettin' person,

If I were a bettin' person, I'd say they probably came from either Madison on the Greens or Savannah West...please Mr. Augusta National member, do something with these properties.
