Richmond County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man in his early 20s who robbed an Augusta resident at gunpoint of a $55 flip phone and $100 in cash early Saturday.
The victim reported that he was accosted as he entered his home in the 800 block of Forest Ridge Road. He told deputies that a black man jumped from behind some bushes, pointed a handgun in his face and demanded his money and phone.
When the 21-year-old victim obliged, the robber hit him across the left eyebrow with the weapon, leaving a deep cut.
Deputies searched the area and found a black cell phone, which they think could be linked to the suspect, who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and beanie cap, dark shirt and blue jeans.
