Man reports Harrisburg robbery

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.
