About 10:40 p.m., Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s deputies were sent to the 1500 block of Picquet Ave­nue, where the victim said he was approached by two black males in ski masks and black clothing who demanded he “give it up,” according to an incident report.

When the victim asked what they meant, one of the men struck him in the head with a handgun and demanded he take off all of his clothes. When he didn’t move fast enough, the second man hit him twice in the head with his handgun, according to the report.

The men took $450 in clothing, two sets of keys and $400 in cash. They were last seen running north toward Parks Avenue.

That outfit and Jordan's fit one of those robbers because I am guessing it wasn't a $450 suit the guy was walking around in while it was raining Friday night

$450 of clothing?

I dress decent but at any given moment the threads on my back are only probably worth about $30. And usually only carry about $ 40 cash around not $400. This must have been a well-to-do guy.

Just An Opinion

I had the same opinion (pardon the pun) I too wear decent clothes but no way do I have on $450 worth on at the same time. I too sometimes carry around a bit of cash, but that much walking around money in an economically depressed neighborhood raises a few questions.
If this guy is doing this well, maybe he should consider moving to a safer neighborhood.

Dear Happy,

You're obviously not familiar with Picquet Avenue. I am. You don't want to be dressed like that and carrying around that kind of money at that time of night. Trust me on this.

Feel sorry the guy got robbed and got injured.

But seriously picture this.

He put on $450 worth of clothing.
He put $400 worth cash in his pocket.
He decide to go walking in a Higher than normal Crime rate area.

What part of NOT attracting attention in a tough neighborhood, loaded with $$$$ on Saturday Night, didn't he learn growing up in
the South?

I really think there is little more this story, or this guy is missing a whole order of Fries in his happy meal.

He should not have been

He should not have been walking in that area at night and with that much money, but, he is still the crime VICTIM. Hopefully he has learned a lesson he won't forget. As for carrying money, my husband use to carry money with him. Sometimes he would have 3 times that amount in his pocket. I was able to finally stop him.

Victim?

I'd be interested to find out where the victim of this crime lives. I wonder if he was in the area looking for a good time? IF that's the case, yes, I blame the victim. If you go looking for trouble, you quite often find it. He was approached by two men in ski masks; it's quite possible he was set up after a pre-arranged meeting.

Is it too early? Is the ink not dry yet? I can read, even between the lines and understand maps, does anyone else? I bet the cops that took this report still have not stopped laughing. Karma is a bad lady.

The description and supposed value

of the clothing is coming from the victim to the police. A nude man can tell them anything. "Oh yes officer....they took my mink coat, my Air Jordans, oh yeah, did I mention dey took my $4,000 I had in my pocket". I don't believe his story and here's why I don't. How many well to do people are walking around today without a smart phone? No report of that being taken.

Y'all have me laughing. No

Y'all have me laughing. No mention of his race. Is that in deference to the victim or so we are not made aware of whether it was black on black crime or black on white crime?

And don't say it makes no difference. It does make a difference to one of the crookest Attorney General of all times.

What, Happy

Your husband would walk around with $1350 in his pocket? Why?

Glad you got him to stop.

you got one "monkey rich"
Unpublished

you got one "monkey rich" gorilla struttin around with his new clothes he just bought and a large "wad" of money my guess if from cahing his momma's welfare check and selling her food stamps, money he stole from somewhere, or from his business of being an "unlicensed pharmaceutical marketer", any of the thre option are the most likley, one thing i am sure of is that he definitely did not buy the clothes or earn the money that was stolen by being gainfully and legally employed at a real job and i am sure that he knows his attackers and that when they walked up to him he thought there were going to be customers...
