Macon police responded to an armed robbery Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened near Glendale Avenue and Elberta Drive about 3:30 p.m., according to a police incident report.

Tyriq Bullock, 28, of Macon, told police he was walking down Glendale Avenue when two men jumped off a porch by an abandoned house and quickly approached him.

While the taller man pointed a gun at him, Bullock told police, the shorter man snatched an electronic tablet he had in his hands.

The two men, both black, escaped in a white sport utility vehicle driven by a third man, Bullock told police.

The tall man who pointed the gun was about 6 feet 2 inches and 250 pounds with long dreadlocks and two tear drop tattoos under his left eye, Bullock said. The shorter man was about 5 foot 10 inches and 200 pounds, he said, with short dreadlocks and a tear drop tattoo under his left eye. The driver of the vehicle was light-skinned with low-cut hair, a mustache and a tear drop tattoo under his left eye, he said.

Police officers spoke with an area resident who saw the incident, the report said.
