Approximately 2:30 a.m., deputies responded to an apartment complex on the 2500 block of Wheeler Road where three victims stated they were robbed at gun point, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Upon arrival, deputies were told that two suspects forced three victims to lie on their living room floor while they robbed the apartment. One victim stated he saw the suspects leave through the back door and escape on foot, the report stated.

Deputies searched the scene but were unable to locate the suspects.

The suspects are described as black males, slender to medium build and were last seen wearing white T-shirts.

Robbery

How in the dickens did those robbers get into that apartment at 2:30 AM?
They had to have known those people. One does not open doors to strangers at that time of the night.

Apartment is too close to

Apartment is too close to known drug-trafficking area. Known for decades. Oh wait. That would be pretty much all of Augusta/Richmond County. Or at least it seems like it sometimes. Too many "known drug-trafficking locations" for decades around here. Never thought it would be like this when we moved here in the 60's. What can be done about it? Don't know why this happened to the victims, hope if it's true, the perps get caught.

Anything I would say would be

Anything I would say would be speculation and unsympathetic to the victims.

Did these two black men just suddenly materialize inside this apartment at 2:30 AM? Did Scotty beam them in from the starship Enterprise? The story did not mention forcible entry. Were these friends, relatives, or a "business" relationship?

Oh well....+2 living the dream.

These guys most likely did not have to have the door opened for

them. If the whole truth were told on this one and the one in Hephzibah were the result of drug deals gone bad.

What Sweet Son said. And

What Sweet Son said.

And flipa, they already ARE known. To the victims, but they know better than to tell.

And they aren't ever, ever, ever going to testify against them unless they have a death wish.

"That would be pretty much all of Augusta/Richmond County." What AL said.

Black males, slender build, wearing white T-shirts. Well, no problem, the pool of suspects is only about 10,000 people.

After the clubs close, and the junkies need their fixes, 2:30 am is prime time for drug deals.
