At about 9 a.m., two men, one armed with a gun, approached Emily Davis outside It’s Fashion Metro in Southgate Shopping Center, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said. One of the men told Davis to hand over the store’s morning deposit and a purse or else she would be shot.

Witnesses said the men escaped in a gold Mitsubishi Mirage and were seen leaving the vehicle in an apartment complex in the 1800 block of Fayetteville Drive at 9:12 a.m., the report said.

Investigators identified one suspect as Justin Demond Stall­worth, 23, and obtained warrants on charges of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

In February 2012, Stall­worth was arrested and charged with felony robbery by intimidation after a robbery at Georgia Bank and Trust on Walton Way. Deputies stopped Stallworth and two of his accomplices about 10 minutes after the robbery using detectors in the money.

In March 2009, Stallworth was indicted on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

I assume this is the same

I assume this is the same Justin Demond Stallworth that was arrested in February 2012 in connection with the robbery of Georgia Bank & Trust on Walton Way.

Just doing his part to keep up the statistics.

I'll ask our reporter to

I'll ask our reporter to check to see if it's the same person. But the age given in the bank robbery story is 23, and it was published in February of 2012. So unless there is an error with one of the ages, I can't say they're definitely the same person.

RCSO confirms it is the same

RCSO confirms it is the same person. The issue with the age appears to be in last year's story. Reporter is updating the story now.

You know you have hit rock

You know you have hit rock bottom in life if the best that you can do is hold up a store in Southgate Shopping Center.

And it took TWO of them. Have they no pride?

They probably got about $10 each

Why wasn't he already in

Why wasn't he already in prison from the 2012 robbery or the '09 assault and weapons charge?

Substation

was moved from the old theater behind Southgate to the location off Highway 56. Shift change used to look like Yellow Jackets coming out of a nest. Now, robberies at Proctor and Gamble are at zero. But watch out Southgate. I wondered about the wisdom of that move then, and still do.

If only these upstanding

If only these upstanding young men had jobs to go to. We all know that's why young males rob. Not because they're thugs and deserve to b locked up. I'm sure they have tried so hard to find employment.

Man, oh man, that Justin Demond Stallworth

is some kinda criminal mastermind, is he not?

Maybe he could be more successful if he switched to purse snatching on lower Broad Street.

That would be my recommendation.

Just trying to help out an enterprising young entrepreneur.

another case of richmond
Unpublished

another case of richmond county "revolving door justice" he robs someone outside a bank and get a year, is released and not has robbed someone again...but our "esteemed" commissioners would rather throw 100-150 million dollars down a rat hole...AKA "the TEE CENTER" than use that money to build more and bigger jails for the "praj-jeck" rats and vermin spewing onto our streets committing crime after crime

WHY?
Unpublished

You only have to look at perps like Stallworth to fully understand why crime is so bad in Augusta. Why is this thug out after two violent felonies? Why are the judges and prosecutors so lax in dealing with thugs like him? Throw out all of them in the next election and get some people in there that aren't too lazy/soft on crime. It's only a matter of time before some citizen ends up dead at his hands.
