A Winterville couple reported a carjacking and armed robbery on Minish Cemetery Road Sunday evening.
According to the incident report, Deputy Gary Floyd responded to a call at Minish Cemetery Road where he met with the couple, who said a white male they had given a ride to pulled a gun on them and forced them to pull over on the shoulder of the road, where he left them, unharmed, and drove off in their red 2000 Ford Mustang, tag number GA4WY8. The car is valued at $15,000.
In another incident, a Comer woman and her son came to the sheriff’s office last week to report that he had been beaten up at the Madison County High School. According to the incident report, the teen said that between 4 and 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 3 he was walking across Madison Street from the high school into the parking lot of the sports complex when three white males approached him and “began cursing him.”
One of the subjects reportedly hit him in the face and the other two began hitting him in the face and head. Deputy Jeff Strickland noted that the teen had a laceration on his lip, under his right eye, and also a large knot on his forehead. The teen said he did not know the subjects, but that they were traveling in a white Toyota truck. The mother said she was taking her son to Athens Regional First Care for treatment of his injuries.
