DECATUR — A Decatur woman was dragged to an empty lot, threatened with what she feared was a gun and robbed Saturday night, according to police reports.

Detective Sgt. Chris Copeland said the 49-year-old victim had been walking in the 1100 block of North Edward Street when she passed a man also walking in the same direction about 11:50 p.m. “She said she said ‘hi’ to him as she was passing and he then grabbed her by the arm, dragged her into a large empty lot and demanded money,” Copeland added.

Copeland said the woman described the man as pressing an object against her temple she believed was a gun but she never got a good look at it. “She told him she had no money and so he took her jewelry and her boyfriend’s cell phone, which she was carrying with her,” Copeland added. “He then fled eastbound on foot; the victim was not injured.”

The suspect is described as black, aged between 20 and 25, between 6-feet and 6-feet-2-inches tall, 160-180 pounds, and wearing a gray zip-up and hooded sweatshirt, with the hood up, and black pants.
