A 22-year-old Athens man was arrested for robbery and drug possession following an incident Thursday night at an eastside apartment complex, Athens-Clarke County police said.
Officers were dispatched to the Summit of Athens in the 1000 block of Barnett Shoals Road on witness reports that two people were involved in an altercation, according to police spokeswoman Shashi Charles.
Officers took into custody one of the suspects after a foot chase, but the other suspect ran into a wooded area and could not be located, Charles said.
The arrested suspect was identified by police as Trevor Vidal Burgess, 22, of Barrington Drive.
He was charged with robbery, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.
The police incident report did not include a narrative about what happened, but it did list a 28-year-old male resident of the Summit of Athens as the victim.
“This is still an active investigation,” Charles said. “As soon as detectives know more, we will pass it on to you.”
