MOULTRIE — Three Moultrie residents reported being robbed at gunpoint of their clothes during the New Year’s holiday weekend while three other would-be robbers were apprehended by Moultrie police officers.

Sheniera Clark reported she was robbed at knifepoint while sleeping on the front porch of a residence on 10th Street Southwest at about 6 a.m. Saturday. Vincent Hudson, however, reported he and Clark were inside the residence at the time of the incident, but both reported they were held at knifepoint by two unknown men.

Police reports said Hutson told officers the two unknown men held a knife to his throat and to Clark’s throat while they were lying in bed at the residence. The unknown men took Hutson’s Bulova gold and silver watch and took an estimated $6 cash out of his wallet.

After taking the watch and cash, reports said the men made Hutson strip off all of his clothes. Clark told officers she was held at knifepoint by the two men on the front porch and was forced to strip off all of her clothes.

The robbers took all of Hutson’s and Clark’s clothes and left the residence with them, police reports said. An officer found Clark’s clothing on 10th Street Southwest when they searched, but she stated her car keys were still missing. It was unknown if Hutson’s clothes were also recovered by the officer.

Reports said Clark and Hutson described the unknown men as black males wearing all black clothing with their faces covered. One of the men was wearing a white scarf or bandana while the other wore a black bandana.

A witness to the incident told officers she saw three unknown men on the front porch when she arrived, but reports said she gave the same description of two of the men that Clark and Hutson gave . The witness knew a street name of the third person, and Hutson provided a possible phone number for him to the officer.

Davey Barge reported he was also robbed of his clothes early Sunday morning, but the male acquaintance robbed him at gunpoint. Police reports said Barge was walking home on Joe Louis Avenue at 12:07 a.m. Sunday when the male acquaintance asked him for a cigarette.

Barge bent over to tie his shoe, and reports said the male acquaintance put a gun to his neck and told him to “give it up” and “get naked.” Barge was forced to strip down to his boxers and socks, but he fled from the scene on foot, leaving behind a shirt, pants and $350 cash in his pants.

The male acquaintance began to shoot at Barge as he ran from the scene but did not hit him, reports said. Barge was not injured in the incident, but he told officers the total value of the stolen items was estimated at $390.

In another incident, a store clerk fought off two men as they attempted to rob the Super Cee on West Boulevard Friday morning. Both men returned to the scene twice, once while officers were responding to the incident, and they were apprehended.

Gregory Lester Williams Jr., 21, of 503 East College Circle in Doerun, and Anterrio T. Daniels, 20, of 710 East Union in Doerun, were each charged with armed robbery. Daniels was also charged with aggravated assault and two other counts of armed robbery for two previous armed robberies at the convenience store.

Police reports said Moltammad Yaqub, a clerk at the store, stated a black male, later identified as Daniels, came into the store at about 9:33 a.m. Friday. Daniels walked around the store for a short time then allegedly pulled a mask over his face and demanded money from Yaqub.

Daniels then walked to the back of the store carrying a gun, but reports said Yaqub stopped him between the counter and a cooler. A struggle allegedly ensued between Yaqub and Daniels, and Yaqub was able to pull the mask off of Daniels before Daniels hit Yaqub in the head with the gun.

Daniels fled from the store but dropped his identification before running, reports said. Daniels allegedly returned to the store and searched for the identification before running out of the store a second time.

Reports said an officer went to the store to get a report from Yaqub when a green car drove by the store. Yaqub identified the vehicle as the one that he had seen leave the store following the earlier robbery, and the officer stopped the vehicle on 11th Street Southwest.

The officer got both Daniels and Williams out of the vehicle, and reports said he placed both of them under arrest without incident. Both were taken to the Moultrie Police Department to speak with investigators before being taken to Colquitt County Jail.

In a separate incident, an officer apprehended a man after he allegedly sprayed two men with pepper spray and stole their Chevrolet Blazer Sunday morning.

Timothy Hallman, 33, of 44 East Dixie Lane in Dixie, was charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police reports said Terrell Hill and Michael Reynolds got into an argument with Hallman while all three were at Paradise Apartments on Fifth Avenue Southeast at 6:19 a.m. Sunday. The three men got into an argument, and Hallman allegedly sprayed Hill and Reynolds with pepper spray using a keychain container of spray.

After spraying Hill and Reynolds, reports said Hallman allegedly stole a Chevrolet Blazer owned by Reynolds. The vehicle was found in a ditch on the road leading to Dairy Queen from Fifth Avenue Southeast undamaged but with the keys missing.

A Colquitt County sheriff’s deputy found Hallman along Highway 133 near Sanderson Farms after the deputy heard about the incident on his radio, reports said. After placing Hallman under arrest and taken to Colquitt County Jail, officers found the container of pepper spray in his pants pocket, but they did not find the keys to the Blazer.
