Brothers report being robbed near Wrightsboro Road

  • Follow Crime & courts

Two Augusta men reported they were robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning near Wrightsboro Road.

About 3:36 a.m., deputies were called to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where one of the victims was being treated for a large gash above his right eye, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

The victims, who are brothers, were walking on Damascus Road toward Wrightsboro Road when they were approached by a dark blue vehicle with three black men inside. After the car stopped, one man exited the vehicle and pointed a black handgun at the victims, the report stated.

The man struck one victim above the eye, causing the gash. Both victims were told to empty their pockets before the men fled east in their vehicle on Wrightsboro Road.

I realize parts of Damascus

I realize parts of Damascus Road are VERY sketchy, but keep in mind that there are also college apartments there, too. College students, among other people, are not always well-heeled enough to be driving everywhere they go.

There were times in Augusta

There were times in Augusta that I was out that late, and I wasn't doing anything wrong. Sometimes I even had to work until the wee hours of the morning. But I wouldn't want to walk down Damascus Road at any time of the day or night, just because of what AL was saying.

Because you have a right to

Because you have a right to walk the streets any time of the day or night, doesn't mean you should. Just like in the forest, predators roam in the dark.

Thankfully, we know the

Thankfully, we know the history of that area. Younger people might not. Or maybe they did know but they had to walk for reasons not in their control. Maybe it was the shortest route home after a car break-down. The point is: we don't know, so why rush to judgment?
