Man hurt during robbery attempt

A man told Statesboro police he was the victim of an armed robbery attempt Monday evening.

Officers met him at East Georgia Regional Medical Center, where the man sought treatment for injuries he said were sustained in the incident.

Chauntcey Auking Scott told police he was walking his dog on Valley Road between 6 and 7 p.m. Monday "when two unknown black males assaulted him and began hitting him several times with an unknown object," Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said.

"The offenders demanded money from Scott as they struck him" then fled without taking any property, Turner said. "Scott received several lacerations on his head as a result of the incident."

Scott described the offenders as two black males. One was light-skinned and wearing a white T-shirt while the other was tall and dark-skinned with short dreadlocks, Turner said.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact Statesboro police Detective Kevin Weatherly at (912) 764-9911.

Anonymous information may also be submitted to, or send a text message starting with "TIPSSPD" to 274637 (CRIMES). All information is strictly confidential.
