Armed robbers steal Athens man’s gun

By Joe Johnson

A resident of Columbia Brookside apartments reported he was robbed of his gun Monday evening in a breezeway of his building, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report.

The 21-year-old victim said he thought he was going to meet with a group of males in order to hang out, according to the report, but while in the breezeway, one of the males grabbed a Glock .40-caliber pistol from his pants pocket.

During a struggle, the man said he was able to get the gun back, but one of the males stuck another gun to his head and threatened to shoot if he didn't relinquished the weapon.

After the man gave up the firearm the males ran off in an unknown direction.

The victim was unable to give descriptions of the males.
