Authorities are searching today for a man who robbed a woman at a south Augusta ATM late Tuesday night.

The victim, who said she waited to report the crime because she was afraid, was withdrawing money from an ATM at Fifth Third Bank in the 2700 block of Peach Orchard Road around 11:45 p.m. when a man brandishing a black handgun demanded her money, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

The suspect asked for more money, but when the woman said she didn’t have any more he ran from the scene.

The robber is described as black, between the ages of 18 and 25, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds.

I'll be durned. A description

I'll be durned. A description of the thief. Which editor let that slip by? The only suprising thing is that he wasn't betwen 5' 10"" and 6' 2" and 170 pounds. At 5' 4" and 135 I'll bet his age is more like between 14 and 16.

She should have kicked his behind. At 5'4" inches tall, it should have been a breeze.

We all need to take a deep

We all need to take a deep breath and ask several important questions: Why did this unfortunate man feel it was necessary to ask this woman for money? What is society's roll in making this man behave in such a manner? And, finally . . . what is the difference in what this man has done and what Obama and the Democrats plan to do? They also plan to take money that belongs to one person and give it to another person. What's the difference? Robbery at the federal level is legal whereas robbery at a south Augusta ATM is not?

Why would a woman be at a ATM

Why would a woman be at a ATM machine at 11:45 P.M. anyway, and on Peach Orchard at that. She must have been desperate for something??? SusieQ

This is fishy...failed to report it (after the fact) because she was afraid???? Gotta be more to it and anyone with an iota of sense does not go to an ATM that time of night, especially a woman. I don't even like to go in broad daylight!!
