An Augusta man was robbed at gunpoint Monday morning.

Corey Nipper, 27, was walking near the intersection of Third and Telfair streets about 10:30 a.m., when he was approached by two men in black clothing, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The suspects told Nipper to “give it up” before one of the men pulled a handgun and struck Nipper on the head.

Nipper took $40 out of his pocket and threw it at the robbers, who hit and kicked Nipper before fleeing.

Nipper sustained a large cut over his left eye and scratch marks behind his right ear, deputies said.

Third & Telfair

Know it well, walked the streets in that area many times in the fifties and sixties. What a waste of what was once a fine neighborhood.

I hope someone finds them

I hope someone finds them before the police and does the same to them except harder.

Given the place

I understand and this is nothing new.

But given the Time that is odd even for that area.

You've got to wonder

Telfair used to be a decent place, many, many, moons ago.

Whew, pistol whipped at 10:30 am. That's pretty rough!

Kind of makes me want to go hunting, if you get my drift.
