Elderly delivery man held up with broom handle | Crime
COLUMBUS, GA - A man delivering meat to a customer was robbed with a cut-off broom stick late Tuesday night.
The Steak-Out delivery man was in the parking lot of Arbor Point Apartments around 10 p.m. on Feb. 5.
He was meeting a customer when a random man armed with a shortened broom handle ran toward him yelling, "Get up! Get up!"
The 59 year-old victim said he didn't want any trouble and told the man he could take what he needed.
The suspect pushed him against the car and said, "Stop making all that noise!" He took $50 out of the victims front pocket.
The customer saw the suspect run at the delivery man and make threatening gestures with the broom handle.
The suspect was last seen running southbound on Fort Benning Rd.
