From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

Robbery: A victim told BCSO on April 14 he was robbed the day before after he and his older brother left a volleyball game at the South Bryan Rec Department on Timber Trail.  

The victim said they were walking towards the football field in the middle of the park when they were met by two people they apparently knew. One grabbed the victim by the neck while the other pulled a gun and demanded money. 

The victim, whose age was not listed on the report, said he gave the robbers $50 because “he was not sure if the gun was real or not.” The victim said he was not hurt during the incident. 

Detectives are investigating. 

 Simple battery: A Dublin man called 911 on April 15 claiming he was hit by a metal pipe at an address in Ellabell.  

The man at first turned down EMS, but later asked for help, and told deputies the only reason he was at the address was to use his mother’s phone. 

The report noted the man had in the past been banned from the property, but was allowed back, and at some point while he was there a woman hit him “in his head and arm with a pipe.” 

A deputy asked to see the area where the man was hit with the pipe and couldn’t see any red marks, “as he had a shaved head.” 

The man did show the deputy a small red mark on his arm. 

A deputy then spoke with the woman who hit him with a pipe, and she said she was scared of him due to “him being violent and his drug history,” and when he showed up “she grabbed an object. This object was a cardboard tube, similar to a wrapping paper tube,” and after he tried to buy drugs from her and then reached for his mother and her, “she grabbed the cardboard tube and struck (the man) in self-defense.” 

She didn’t want to prosecute, just wanted the man to leave. A criminal trespass notice was issued to the man.  

 Matter of  record: Deputies were sent to the busy intersection of Highway 80 and Highway 280 in Blitchton on April 15 regarding a “possible brokedown semi truck,” and then were told there as a possible accident between the truck and  a Ford F250 “and the two separate parties were engaged in a fight.” 

Deputies got to the intersection and saw the accident and “all parties engaged in a heated verbal argument,” and separated everyone.  

The truck driver said he was trying to turn from 280 onto 80 west because he had the right of way and the driver of the pickup wouldn’t back up, so he couldn’t turn.  

The truck driver and his son then claimed the people in the F250 “began using racial slurs at them.” 

The people in the pickup, which was towing a trailer, said the semi came through the intersection “fast and turned in a sharp manner nearly striking their vehicle,” and they got into an argument.  

They denied using racial slurs, and said the truck driver and his son “began kicking and punching the trailer as well as the windows to (the owner’s) truck,” but didn’t cause any damage. 

Everybody got a case number, etc. 

 Disorderly house, etc: Deputies and first responders were sent to a Highway 204 convenience store shortly after midnight April 12 regarding a victim who “had 2 cuts on his head and had dried blood on his head and his neck,” and claimed he was sitting in the living room at an Ellabell address when a man “hit him in the head with a gun and told him to get on his knees while at gun point and then stole his wallet, his phone and his dog.” 

The victim then said the man and a woman chased him on his motorcycle on their motorcycle, which was spotted by deputies at some point during this. 

As EMS  got the victim ready to take to the hospital, the motorcycle with the man and woman on it was pulled over, and they said the  victim was  drinking at the Ellabell address and they asked him to leave, he refused and they got into a fight. When the victim left he climbed over a fence that had barbed wire on top. 

A deputy found the victim’s wallet near the fence. The man and woman on the motorcycle were “released from the traffic stop.”  

 Missing person: A Richmond Hill woman woman reported April 11 that her 66-year-old husband had been missing since April 9 when she got into an argument with him that “began when she found him passed out on the couch with a container of canned air.”  

The woman, 64, said her husband has a “history of being hospitalized because of huffing canned air.”  

She said he left his medicine for diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure, and she had last heard from April 11 when he texted her to tell her he’d be home by 9 p.m.  

She said her husband’s cellphone pinged at a motel near the airport in Savannah. 

Missing person's paperwork was completed, etc.
