ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   Three Crisp County men are charged with robbing and pistol whipping four men at a South Dougherty County trailer park. Police are also looking for a fourth suspect.

20-year-old Michael Clark, 17-year-old Joseph Paul and 19-year-old Devalston Dawson are charged with armed robbery and assault. Police have warrants for 18-year-old Terrence Turner, but he is still on the run.

Investigators say the robbers targeted Hispanic men at Paradise Village December 5th, beating one of them with a gun.

"Hispanic folks tend not to use banks," said Dougherty County Police Capt. Jimmy Sexton. "They are reluctant to deal with the police. We've had several incidents over the years where Hispanics have been the victim of robberies and assaults."

Investigators think Terrence Turner is hiding out in Sumter County. If you have any information on him, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS, or the Dougherty County police at 229-430-6600.
