Three Suspects Sought in Beating, Armed Robbery

Savannah-Chatham police are asking for your help in finding three armed robbery suspects. About 11:45pm last night, officers and an ambulance were called to Homewood Suites off White Bluff Road for the report of an armed robbery.

Police say a North Carolina man was getting out of his car when he was jumped by three men wearing masks. One of the men pulled a gun and demanded the victim's cash, then hit him across the face with the gun. The men began punching the victim and took his wallet and the keys to his car.

Joseph Richardson, who works at the motel, heard the victim's screams for help and went to his assistance. He yelled for the suspects to leave the man alone and they ran toward White Bluff and Savannah Tech.

The victim was taken to a hospital to be checked out, but the suspects are still at large.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
