Man convicted of assault, robbery of two teachers

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A man was convicted after plea deal was reached for the robbery and aggravated assault of two public school teachers.

Nathan Edwards, 46, pleaded guilty on Dec. 13 to two counts of robbery and aggravated assault with the intent to commit robbery.

On Dec. 18, 2009, Edwards assaulted and robbed a fourth grade teacher at Pulaski Elementary School and on Jan. 14, 2010, he assaulted and robbed another teacher at Haven Elementary school, according to the Chatham County Attorney's Office.

In both cases, Edwards arrived at the schools early in the morning, entered the classrooms, put his hand over the teachers' mouths and ran off with their bags.

In May 2010, he was spotted at Haven Elementary School by a teacher and pointed out to police. He was later caught by Sgt. Gary Moore and taken into custody.

Edwards was sentenced to 20 years to serve in state prison without parole and 40 years of supervised probation by Superior Court Judge Michael Karpf.
