Richmond County investigators said Sam Morrison had just left Circle K, 1713 Martin Luther King Blvd., about 1 p.m. when a woman grabbed the back of his wheelchair and pushed him into an alley.

Police said the woman, later identified as 33-year-old Shanigue Robertson, dumped Morrison from his chair and pulled a knife on him.

Police believe Robertson had seen the victim with money at Circle K.

Robertson took money from his pocket and fled, police said. She was booked into the Richmond County jail friday on charges of armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a knife during the commission of a crime, criminal damage to property in the second degree and exploitation of the elderly.

Police are seeking a witness to the incident who helped Morrison get back into his wheelchair.

Anyone with information can call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1020.

Low, low, low

I mean how low can you go to do this to a handicap person? Trashy person that needs to have a serious attitude adjustment. I started to say her punishment should include working with the elderly but she would probably stalk and exploit them. Justice would call for her to be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.

Awesome story

"Feel good" story of the day. A great pick-me-up. I feel better already. Thanks for posting!

Seriously, crimes like this give us an insight into the minds of these moral flatliners. They're not people who simply "made a bad decision", as we're always told by the liberals. No, their whole mindset is different. They are predators. They look at other people completely differently to you and I. Whereas we see another person as someone like ourselves, with wants, needs, emotions, problems, etc etc, who should be respected, they see only potential victims as they survey the people moving around them. They see objects which can be exploited for their own needs and wants. Nothing more.

It's similar to when a wild animal sees potential unsuspecting pounces. There's no moral evaluation of actions taking place. No examination of conscience. No vestige of human empathy for one's fellow man. Just the answering of a selfish, primeval urge.

If this woman really did

If this woman really did this, she is nothing more than a burden and a danger to society. To prey on those who are weaker is indicative of this woman having absolutely no moral compass. We don't need her.

Augusta homicides up, but no cases recently
Although Augusta homicides are up compared with this time last year, police say a two-month absence of any is proof that some of their crime initiatives are paying off.
