Assault, robbery on Addie Street in LaGrange

Several suspects committed an assault and robbery on Addie Street in LaGrange late Thursday, police said.

Two men, 29- and 35-years-old, were walking south on Addie Street about 11:05 p.m. when a group of four to five suspects approached wearing red bandannas over their faces. Two of the suspects pulled out handguns, pointed them at the men and demanded cash, reports state.

The men tried to run, but the suspects caught the younger man and started assaulting him. They went through his pockets and took his wallet and cell phone, police said.

Reports state the suspects then ran from the area, dropping the wallet in the process.

Both men received minor injuries and declined medical treatment, police said.

The suspects are black men in their late teens to early 20s. All were about 5-foot-7 and 140-160 pounds. The suspects were seen leaving in a light-colored, older model Honda, reports state.

Anyone with information about the robbery should contact LaGrange police at 706-883-2603 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at 706-812-1000.
