Men robbed after stopping with flat tire

Two men told police they were robbed at gunpoint after stopping with a flat tire early Wednesday.

Rooney Dupuy, 27, of Texas, and Antwaun Fambro, 28, of Arkansas told police they were driving on Morgan Road around 1:30 a.m. to get to Gate 1 of Fort Gordon on Gordon Highway when they had a flat tire. The men had previously attempted to enter the base’s Tobacco Road entrance after returning from downtown but found it closed.

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report, four black men stopped and asked if they needed help, but then pulled out handguns and forced the victims to the ground.

The four men made off with wallets, cell phones, the keys to the victim’s vehicle and Fambro’s pants and Jordan sneakers.

After the robbers left, the victims flagged down a passing motorist who gave them a ride to the fort where they notified military police.
