The report stated that the juvenile was walking home along Beck Street toward Anne Street when he heard a car pull up behind him. He then heard the car door shut and a male walking up to him.
With a gun in his hand, the male asked the juvenile if he was “from the south side.” The suspect eventually put the gun to the juvenile’s thigh and fired one shot, with the bullet grazing the top of the juvenile’s thigh.
The juvenile said in the report that he didn’t see the suspect’s face, gun or vehicle, but described him as 5 feet, 9 inches, to 6 feet tall with a slim build, wearing a gray hoodie and a red hat.
The juvenile was treated at Spalding Regional Medical Center.
In another incident, occurring about 10 p.m. Saturday, a 38-year-old Griffin man was robbed as he was walking home along North Fifth Street.
In a GPD incident report, the victim, who — by his own account — was intoxicated at the time of the robbery, stated that he was robbed by two black males at East Tinsley Street and North Fifth Street. One of the suspects, he stated, struck him in the head with a gun, and after he went to the ground, the suspects went through his pockets and took $14 and “his four beers.”
The victim stated that he received lacerations to his right middle finger and right ring finger when he grabbed a knife from one of the suspects and threw it away. He also had a laceration to his forehead as a result of being struck with the gun.
Police were dispatched to the emergency room of Spalding Regional Medical Center the following day to speak to the victim.
