As of Wednesday evening, the Valdosta Police Department has released no new information concerning the armed robbery that occurred last Saturday night at approximately 9:40 p.m. According to the Valdosta Daily Times, a nineteen-year-old female student was robbed at the corner of East Jane Street and Williams Street in front of Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, a mostly residential area which hosts little foot traffic at most times of day.
The offenders asked to use the student’s phone and the student willingly handed it over in order to help. When she refused to give the password, one of the individuals produced a handgun and demanded the password. She refused, and the men took her phone and her handbag.
The suspects were described as two black males, and rode away from the scene on bicycles. Any information that may further the investigation of this crime should be reported to the Valdosta Police Department Crime Tip Line at (229) 293-3091 or (229) 293-3145.
