A Macon man was forced at knife-point to drive Thursday from the Bibb County Courthouse to Lower Poplar Street, where he was robbed, according to Macon police.
Lewis Robert Clark, 41, of Macon, told police he was inside the courthouse and found a man rummaging through his Jeep Wrangler when he came out of the building about 5:20 p.m. The man brandished a knife, put it to Clarks neck and grabbed him by the arm, demanding that he drive them to Lower Poplar Street near Cox Cafe, according to a police report released Friday.
The man demanded that Clark hand over his wallet and took cash and pills from the vehicle. He punched Clark in the rib cage before leaving, according to the report.
Police met with Clark at Coliseum Hospital. He had cuts on his neck and stomach.
The alleged robber is described as a middle-aged black man with bloodshot eyes who was wearing a blue cap, a blue and white shirt and dark pants, according to the report.
