About 2:27 p.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 3300 block of Old Louisville Road, where Martin Rosier said a black man stopped next to him in a black car and asked to borrow a lighter, according to an incident report.

When the man got out of the vehicle, he brandished a black handgun and demanded money. Rosier said a struggle ensued, during which he was hit over the head several times with the pistol.

The suspect, dressed in all black with shoulder-length dreadlocks, then stole Rosier’s wallet before heading north on Old Louisville Road.

Rosier sustained a wound to the top of his head, but refused medical treatment.

Travel the street frequently

I find the incident not only strange for the Sherwood area, but strange in itself.

This is why we lock our car doors, Mr. President! This type of crime has got to stop for the country to move forward and trust our fellow man.

Doesn't sound suspcious to me. It's a common technique to get close to someone and catch them off guard. Jmo is right. Never load your lighter
