The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who assaulted a 63-year-old woman in an MCG restroom Wednesday.

The woman was assaulted about 8:40 Wednesday night while visiting someone, said Investigator Brandon Beckman. The man was armed with a steak knife, but fled when another woman entered the restroom.

Photos and video of the attacker have been posted on news Web sites the past several days, but there have been no major leads as of Saturday night, Investigator Beckman said.

Police also believe the man could be linked to a waiting room theft on the same floor of the hospital last week, Investigator Beckman said.

The man is described as a black male, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds with a bald head.

Anyone with information can contact the Richmond County Sheriff's Office Crime Investigation Division at (706) 821-1020.

Blacks are doing the petty

Blacks are doing the petty crimes and these folks are doing the white collar crimes: Check it out: Property value goes from 38,000 to 75,000, to $437,000 at 225 Broad Street. Did the neighbors Know their value increased as much? Did a search on the “Friend Group” on http://mapweb.augustaga.gov/augusta/ (Augustas GIS MAPPING System). Check out all of them some go from a few thousand to 200,000 or more. Got his start at http://www.trnrfoundation.org/founders and http://chronicle.augusta.com/stories/022508/yrb_188403.shtml Is this the same person listed here that was in several foreclosures previously? Who is lending to them? http://classifieds.georgiapublicnotice.com/ (do a search on the owners name all cities) This is public notices. I just need to find out how I can become an investor.

TruckinRanger, yes, the CSRA

TruckinRanger, yes, the CSRA is a black area. The imbalance of crimes committed by race don't quite hold up locally.
