Two individuals were allegedly robbed by two subjects Saturday afternoon while in the 900 block of South Main Street.
According to an incident report filed at the Tifton Police Department, a description of two black males wearing black “do rags” were given to police. The complainant, a 41-year-old woman from Waycross, reported that one of the subjects, who was wearing a black shirt, had his entire face covered with the do rag. Both subjects were approximately 5’7” in height. She said the other subject, who was wearing a white shirt, had a silver revolver.
The woman, along with a 31-year-old man from Waycross, reported the offenders approached them at the north side of a local business located on South Main Street. The offenders demanded the couple give them their money. The man reported he removed his wallet from his pocket and gave it to one of the offenders. The wallet contained $300 in cash. The offenders left running east toward the back of the building.
The surrounding area was checked for the offenders by police, the report states, with negative results. However, two individuals who matched the description of the alleged offenders were seen in the area. The two victims looked at the subjects and were not able to say if they were the offenders.
In another matter, officer Rob Scott reported early Sunday morning he responded to a residence located in the 100 block of West Ninth Street in reference to an assault.
He reported that a man was sitting beside a bush in the front yard and was bleeding from the face. The man’s eyes were also swollen shut. Scott reported that he verified that Emergency Medical Services was en route to his location. He asked the man what happened to him, to which the man replied he was unsure.
The man reported an unknown person came up to him and struck him in the face with an unknown object. He did not see the subject or anything that took place. He also said he did not know where he was when the incident took place. Scott reported it also appeared the man did not know where he was when he was talking to him.
The man reported he was trying to go home to his mother’s house. Scott noticed the man had a wound that appeared to have caused his face to sink in by the use of some type of weapon. Other than his eyes being swollen shut, the man’s lips were red and swollen, and his nose was bleeding also, Scott reported.
While on scene, the officer noticed blood pooled near a vehicle parked at the residence. There was a hat and shirt lying on the ground near the spot. There was blood pooled on the concrete where the car was parked and a spot on the car as well.
Scott reported he notified the man’s mother about the incident. The man was transported to the hospital by Tift County EMS.
Also, a woman reported early Saturday morning that two black males pulled guns on her and a man, demanding money, while in the area of Fourth Avenue and Short Street.
