Macon police charged a man with party to the crime of armed robbery for his alleged involvement in a Sunday evening incident in which a man robbed the driver of a truck, according to a police news release.
Brandon Pierre Moore, 22, was arrested Monday for his participation in a crime in which an unidentified man and a woman hitched a ride with the driver of a red Ford F-350 pickup, later robbing him and taking the truck, police said.
Police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet declined to comment on what Moore’s alleged role was in the robbery and assault, citing the ongoing investigation.
According to the news release, the male passenger instructed the driver to turn into a cemetery off Eisenhower Parkway. Once there, he allegedly pulled a knife on the driver and robbed him. When the driver attempted to leave, the unidentified male passenger allegedly struck him in the head and face, causing him to bleed. According to a police report, the male passenger allegedly cut the victim in the hand.
The male and female then drove away in the pickup, which was later recovered on Knott Street.
According to a police report, the victim fled on foot before meeting up with a man driving a white Mercury Tracer. The driver of that vehicle robbed the victim of his cell phone, the report stated.
The victim went to a convenience store and called police. He refused EMS treatment at the scene for his wounds.
