A Columbus teen was no match for five bounty hunters after he pulled a BB gun on one during a robbery on Coolidge Avenue late Tuesday, police said.

Keivarius Walker, 18, was charged with one count of armed robbery after the 10:50 p.m. holdup at Coolidge Avenue and Forsyth Street. He is held in the Muscogee County Jail for a 2 p.m. Thursday hearing in Recorder's Court.

Duntha Greene, a bounty hunter for James Bonding, said he picked up the unknown man at St. Marys Road and Buena Vista Road when he was directed to Coolidge Avenue. When they reached that location, the teen pulled a black handgun out of his right pocket, pointed it at Greene and said," Give it up."

Greene told the teen, "I don't want no trouble" before he grabbed the gun barrel, pointed it away from him and grabbed his own Taser. The teen ran from the vehicle into the woods on Forsyth Street. That's when Greene called five more bounty hunters for help.

The teen was taken into custody at 817 Coolidge Ave. where he ran onto the porch. Officers identified the weapon in the holdup as a BB gun .
