A man was assaulted and robbed in the parking lot of a north Bibb County apartment complex Friday, but his quick thinking helped investigators identify suspects in the crime.
The incident happened about 5:15 p.m. at the Vistas apartments at 4150 Arkwright Road, according to a release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. Tracy Slaughter, 22, of Gray was dropping off his work truck at his boss’s residence when a man approached him and asked him for change for $20. Slaughter gave him the change. After the man gave Slaughter the $20, the man grabbed Slaughter’s arm and they struggled. Two other men joined in the attack on Slaughter. The three attackers took Slaughter’s wallet and keys and left in a tan Ford Explorer.
Slaughter noted the tag number of the Explorer and gave the information to Bibb Sheriff’s deputies, who later found the vehicle in the Kings Park subdivision in east Bibb County.
On Saturday, the sheriff’s office announced that investigators had taken out warrants for three suspects in the case: Anthony Tarae Enos, 23, Coby Jerrell Durham, 20, and Jerry Lewis Williams Jr, 18. All three are wanted for robbery by force.
