Armed Robbery in Valdosta

A night of fun was broken up as two men held up a group of people at gunpoint. It happened at 1811 Slater Street at around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.

LT Robinson with the Valdosta Police Department says a group of about five were playing cards behind the house when they were approached by two men, both armed with handguns.

Strangely enough, the men only robbed one person. Officers say the two men took off with a purse, about $60 worth of property.

The only description given is two black males, both around six feet tall, approximately 130 pounds, and they were believed to be teenagers.

If you have any information on this robbery, you are asked to call the Valdosta Police Department at 229-242-2606.
