Police have arrested a Heph­zibah man and teenager who they say robbed an Augusta restaurant and shot an employee in the leg Sunday.

Fredrick Jamal Bolden, 23, of Prescott Place, and Deandre Malik Scott, 15, of Windsor Spring Road, face charges of felony armed robbery, according to Rich­mond County jail records. Bolden faces additional felony charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

About 7:50 p.m. Sunday, two armed men entered the KFC restaurant at 2029 Windsor Spring Road and demanded money from the cash register, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Witnesses told police that one of the men fired a shot before leaping over the counter and approaching the drive-through window.

The man approached an employee and demanded money. When the employee refused, the gunman shot him once in the left knee.

The two fled with cash and were last seen running toward a nearby McDonald’s parking lot. Bol­den was detained about an hour later trying to enter a car in the parking lot.

The KFC employee was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center to receive treatment for injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Nothing good comes of a 15

Nothing good comes of a 15 year old hanging out with a 23 year old. Too bad Deandre's parents didn't keep better track of who he was hanging out with.

Fredrick Jamal and Deandre

Fredrick Jamal and Deandre Malik. What's in a name?

And 'ole Fredrick Jamal.....they need to take him out back and put him down. Our catch and release justice system apparently has failed to "reform" him with it's unlimited "second chance(s)" and tolerance for thugs and scum. I suspect since Deandre Malik is thieving and robbing at 15 that he needs to be put down too. Our judges certainly won't do anything about this "minor" until he kills someone.

Dichotomy

Sure, just kill these two young men. Please stop and reflect on that. I am by no means defending what they allegedly did. But I would almost guarantee you that these kids grew up in an environment so foreign to you and me that we can not begin to understand. But for God's grace, I could have been born into those circumstances. So should they be punished? Of course. Society can not tolerate such behavior. But kill them? Good grief. So much for our Christian values.

before criticizing dichotomy, lets take a step back and remember one of the men fired a shot then shot the employee in the knee, right there shows a propinsity for violence and what if the bullet would have hit the employee's artery??? chances are he would have bled to death so putting both of these monkey gorilla animals down does not sound like a bad idea, because one of them has already shot someone and chances are they will be out in less than 3 years to rob again and this time whose to say they will not shot and this time kill someone while committing a crime, the criminal justice system with their corrupt lawyers,politicians, and judges have failed us its time radical steps be taken to rid society of these animals...of course it goes without say both are products of the welfare/foo stamps system both growing up in dogwood terrace, cooney circle, river glen, or may park...and of course not knowing "who dey daddy is" goes a long way along with having 3-4 add'l brothers and sisters each having "dey own daddy", seeing man after man laying around "wit dey mammy" only goes to reienforce their anti-social behavior and of course they sorry azz mammies are probably in theire late 20's early 30's with them and "dey sorry azz mammies" having little or no education, job skills, or motivation to even get a job, and having many other brothers and sisters means "dey sorry azz mammies" are nothing more than welfare-project broodmares, leeches, and parasites, spending more time on their backs/knees having unprotected sex with any man (like female dogs in heat) or pushing out other babies they can't afford to raise then caring for the ones they got or trying improve themselves to get off welfare

@billcass - Last Chance

What I have suggested in the past is that we create "Last Chance". Clean out (by whatever means) the inhabitants of one of our SuperMax prisons. Turn it into a Trade School. Look @ the job openings nationwide, and pick four trades that will be taught. Send these young criminals to school, help them get a job. Then, if they EVER go back to their previous life of crime, kill them. The government will give ONE "Last Chance". Make the trade choices good paying ones, ones that would allow them to be a contributing member of Society.

Both are on the way to being career criminals and should be dealt with as such. Enact a three strikes law and enforce it. Three felony strikes and you're in the joint forever.

Bolden SHOT the employee

So I have no sympathy for him or how he grew up, billcass. Robbery is one thing, and bad enough, but to SHOOT the employee? That could have very well ended badly for the employee. Bolden has shown that he has zero regard for human life. This time he didn't kill someone. Next time, his victim may not be so lucky. Yep. Execute him if convicted.

billcass, I agree with some that, this what the Great Society, liberals, democrats and black leaders have created over the last 30 to 40 years. It can't be fixed supporting the same old entitlement programs. By the way billcass we are not stupid and can understand.

Who said you were stupid and could not understand? I certainly didn't mean to imply as much. And I am about as far to the right as one can get. But as followers of a sovereign God, who rules by grace, we should be more attuned to the fact that, for all of their sins, they are also God's children and God loves these two as much as he loves you and me.

"The man approached an employee and demanded money.

When the employee refused, the gunman shot him once in the left knee."

.
First of all, the thug had a gun. Give him the freakin money.

Second, animals like that don't deserve to live and will certainly kill at some point in the future. If a legitimate opportunity to take them out now arises, someone should take it. No telling how may lives would be saved.

(Notice I said "legitimate". I'm not in favor of vigilantism.)

Sick and tired of that claptrap about being "born into those circumstances". They have free will and in choosing to shoot an unarmed man, they chose to exercise that free will.

Just suppose that round had struck an artery, billcass? What then?
