2 robbed at gunpoint in Augusta driveway

Four masked men robbed an Augusta man and woman at gunpoint early Saturday, police say.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, a 38-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman were in a home’s driveway in the 1100 block of Maxwell Street about 1:30 a.m. when four men wearing masks, dark shirts and pants surrounded them.

Three of the men were carrying semi-automatic pistols and one had a modified assault rifle with the stock cut off, the report said.

The man was told to get down on the ground and give up his pants and keys. The man said he complied and that his pants contained about $600.

The woman said she was also told to lie on the ground and that the gunmen took her purse, which contained about $300.

Both victims told police that one gunman said “Bloods for life” as the four ran away.
