SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A motorist says a man helped push his broken down car off a Spartanburg County highway, then robbed him.

The victim told Spartanburg County sheriff’s deputies that he was pushing his car off an exit on Interstate 85 Business around 10 p.m. Tuesday when the man offered to help.

Investigators say the two men pushed the car into a parking lot, and the suspect then pulled a gun and demanded the victim’s wallet.

Deputies say the suspect got $2 before he walked away.

No arrests have been made.

Does it pay to be a good guy anymore...

Atlanta police are looking for a pair of men who robbed a would-be Good Samaritan at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon outside the Buffalo China restaurant at Moreland and Glenwood avenues.

The victim told police he was in the restaurant at 1145 Glenwood Ave. SE at about 4:15 p.m., when one of the men approached him saying he was illiterate and needed help with a reading an "important document."

The man asked the victim if he could come outside into the restaurant parking lot because he didn't want others to overhear the information contained in the document.

When outside, a second man came up from behind, stuck a gun in the victim's side and robbed him, taking $40.

The two bobbers fled on foot, heading west on Glenwood.

Anyone who would rob another

Anyone who would rob another person is not a "good samaritan", no matter what they just finished helping someone with. Far from it.
