An Augusta woman told deputies she was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning after she refused to give a ride to a man on Greene Street.

According to a sheriff’s office incident report, a black man flagged the 30-year-old woman down about 8:50 a.m. at the intersection of Greene and Eve streets and asked for a ride to a gas station.

Police said the woman told the man she was uncomfortable giving a ride to a stranger. She was trying to drive away when the man tried to open her car door. The man then pulled out a handgun, pointed it at her and demanded money.

The woman told deputies the man ran away after she handed him $4.

I'm sure this woman would've been robbed, or worse, even if she did give the guy a ride.

Wise UP!

Surely by now one would know after living in Augusta five minutes NEVER stop downtown, Harrisburg (in this case) or anywhere else on earth to find out what a rascal wants!

Tell me you didn't stop!

Yep, in Augusta if someone trys to flag you down you steer toward them until either they jump in the ditch or you knock them into the ditch and then you floor it and get the heck out of there.

Dichotomy, I think that would

Dichotomy, I think that would be anywhere when you are in areas with run down houses and people on the street that look like they do not work.

My neck of the woods.

That's in my neck of the woods, Harrisburg. We have cut down on a lot of crime in our neighborhood. Wish we could drop crime on the spot if you get my meaning.
