Three people who were walking in downtown Augusta about 2 a.m. Thursday were robbed of their wallets and $250 worth of electronics by two armed men.
The robbery happened near the intersection of Third and Ellis streets. That’s where two black men, one carrying a silver handgun, demanded the victims’ wallets.
The victims complied, giving up their wallets, a $200 cell phone and a $50 watch.
The suspects, described as skinny men who measured 5-feet, 10 inches tall, have dreadocks and were wearing white and black shirts, fled on Ellis Street.
