Armed robberies downtown
Is this an unusual number of armed robberies for downtown? A man was robbed at gunpoint by a pair of black males about 2:50 a.m. on Wednesday while walking on West Hancock Avenue near Pulaski Street, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. A possible suspect was arrested. Now the Athens-Clarke County Police report that a woman was threatened at gunpoint last night at about 11:10 p.m. on West Hancock Avenue as she was getting into her car. She had no money and the gunman fled. The description of the suspect is "early 20s, dark complexion, slim but muscular" and he wore a "black fuzzy hat, blue shirt with raised light/white lettering, dark baggy jeans, and tennis shoes."
