  • Follow Latest News

An elderly Augusta woman was robbed at gunpoint during a home invasion this afternoon.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, an unidentified man came to the 84-year-old woman’s house on Ridgewood Drive about 2:10 p.m. and asked if he could do yard work. When the woman refused, the man pushed his way inside the home and knocked her over a chair. He then pulled a handgun out of his backpack and demanded money, jewelry and medications. The man escaped with $100 in cash, a gold chain and diamond pendent worth $300 and an unknown medication, according to the report.

The robber is described as a white man in his early twenties, about six feet tall with a slender build, brown hair, unshaven, and wearing a plaid shirt and light green shorts and carrying a blue backpack.

What a lowlife...another

What a lowlife...another [filtered word] that doesn't deserve to live. Robbing old people rather than working makes you feel like a man, you deserve to be strung up in public and stoned! It is sad when people aren't safe in their own homes in broad daylight. I can imagine the kind of big talk these [filtered word]'s would do if someone did that to their mom or grandmom. I hope they catch him!!!!

Absolutely ridiculous actions

Absolutely ridiculous actions by an obvious criminal thug who will hopefully be caught quickly and stay in jail for quite a long time. Violent criminals such as this should NEVER walk amongst us again - If they knew that their actions would result in them truely being in jail the rest of their lives, they would certainly put a lot more thought into their actions. Either way, violent criminals are the lowest of the low and don't deserve any breaks whatsoever. Probably wanted money for drugs - disgusting.

Too bad someone didn't catch

Too bad someone didn't catch him in the act and beat the ever loving stew out of hm. Hey lowlife, if you are reading this, provided you can read, why don't you find a man your size or bigger to rob. Here's hoping that your next victim has a gun and puts a bullet in your sorry skull.
