LaGrange man robbed while walking to West Georgia Health System

A LaGrange man was robbed early Wednesday while walking to the West Georgia Health System, reports state.

The 22-year-old was walking about 5:15 a.m. to the LaGrange facility when a suspect approached from South Greenwood Street and began walking with him. When the two men reached Ashton Street and Harwell Avenue, the suspect punched the other man in the face, police said.

That’s when a car pulled up. A second suspect got out of the vehicle and hit the 22 year old. Both suspects then robbed the man of an unknown amount of cash before they fled, reports state.

Police say the victim was treated on the scene for minor injuries.

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