He told police that the other man pulled out a pistol, pointed it at him and then fired several shots into the air.

In the second incident, Cameron Klar of Baconton reported that he was robbed while delivering a pizza for Pizza Hut to Northgate Apartments, 1515 Fourth Ave. N.E. No weapon was used, police said.

 “They (a group) were standing outside,” Moultrie Police Department Inv. Steven Colgan said. “They sent him to a vacant apartment. The area where they were at was dark.”

Klar was robbed of cash and a cell telephone worth a total of $140, police reports said.

Police made an arrest in a third violent incident reported on Sunday.

Travis Cheyenne Willis, 27, 1244 Cannon Road, was charged with aggravated battery after he allegedly broke the nose of 40-year-old Joey Murphy. Murphy was injured during a reported confrontation between the two men at about 1 a.m. in the 1900 block of Second Street Southeast.

Murphy told police that he told Willis to leave a female acquaintance alone and Willis then punched him in the face.

Police talked with Willis on the phone and he agreed to meet a Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office deputy in Norman Park, at which time he was arrested.
