75-Year-Old Assaulted, Robbed Outside North Bibb Home

A north Bibb County 75-year-old was injured when three men robbed him outside his home.

The sheriff's department says it happened around 9:30 a.m. Thursday on the 4600 block of Sprucewood Drive.

A news release says Howard Reed was sitting outside, near his carport, when the three men approached him.


One asked if he worked on lawnmowers, and Reed said he usually does not.

They jumped into a small black vehicle.

Reed was treated for a minor wound, the release says.

The release says: "The three suspects were described as being approximately 6 feet 0 inches in height, two of the suspects weighed around 180 lbs. The third suspect was a little heavier, weighing around 200lbs. All three were wearing grey and black clothing. No further description given."
