Men Suspected in Assault in Court

Two men accused of attempting to snatch an 82-year-old woman's purse in Sandfly's Piggly Wiggly parking lot made their first appearance in court yesterday afternoon. Nineteen-year-old Jermaine Jackson and 18-year-old Tevin Peters are charged with aggravated assault and attempted robbery.

Savannah police arrested both men Wednesday morning, after officers spotted their car in Hitch Village. Police say it was the same car used in Tuesday's robbery attempt. Both men will be back in court August 22.
