An Augusta man was the victim of an armed robbery in Harrisburg early this morning, less than a day after Harrisburg residents and property owners protested drugs, crime and some landlords in the neighborhood.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, the robbery occurred at the intersection of Eve and Fenwick streets at about 12:45 a.m.

The victim said that he had stopped at the intersection when three men ran up to his truck. One of the men pointed a handgun at him, and the other two opened the passenger door and stole a variety of items.

The stolen items included a wallet containing about $400 in cash, a $100 Panasonic DVD player, a $200 cell phone and a saw valued at $125, according to the report.

The robbers are described as black and 20 to 25 years old. They were wearing all black clothing.

Robbed by 3 young black men

Robbed by 3 young black men in Harrisburg at almost 1:00 in the morning? Say it isn't so.......And answer me this....Why is it that almost every person who claims to be robbed has HUNDREDS of dollars in cash on them? I earn a decent amount of money and I almost NEVER have more than $50 or $60 on me at any one time.

Since when is it against the law to have cash? Have you ever heard of someone paying cash for a computer or a car? Dang! $400 is not much at all.

If you keep a gun right next

If you keep a gun right next to the seal, loaded, you can hand them some lead instead of cash.
