MOULTRIE — Moultrie police arrested a suspect Monday in a Jan. 22 robbery in which a man reported a gunman taking his money in a restaurant parking lot.

Kenji Ramon Irvin, 29, 1337 Sumner Circle, was charged with armed robbery.

He is accused of robbing Willie Peterson Jr., 31, at about 10:30 a.m. in the McDonald’s parking lot at 506 First Ave. S.E.

Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
