Anthony Hensley, 26, of Augusta, and Crystal Spurlock, 25, of Wagener, S.C., said they were responding to an ad for an iPhone 5S and drove to a house in the 3800 block of Wendell Street to meet someone by the name of Jamie about 4 p.m. Saturday, a police report said. When they pulled into the driveway, a man approached asking whether they were looking for Jamie.
The man told Hensley and Spurlock that he would see whether Jamie was home, then knocked on the front door. When no one answered, he walked backed to the car, brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded Hensley and Spurlock hand over their phones and the $325 intended for the new phone.
The man was last seen “skipping” toward the end of Wendell Street. He is described as a black male with a slender build wearing a black hooded jacket with white shoes.
