LOUISIANA MAN IS ROBBED BY PAIR
A Louisiana man was robbed of clothing and $200 in cash Friday by two men in Columbia who turned on him after initially offering him a ride, county police said.
The victim, who had been staying with friends in the Baltimore area, reported he was offered a ride back to Louisiana by two men to whom he had been introduced about a week ago, police said.
At approximately 12:45 p.m., the driver of the car pulled over on U.S.
29 near Route 175 and told the man that he did not intend to drive any further, according to police. The other man then pulled out a knife, held it to the victim's face and told him to hand over his valuables, police said.
The victim gave the men his money, three pairs of designer blue jeans, two pullover shirts, a T-shirt and a pair of prescription sunglasses, police said. The two men then drove off and left the victim by the side of the road.
Police say the victim was not able to provide an address or last names of the men, who are believed to be Baltimore residents. No injuries were reported in the incident.
