Albany man robbed after showing off gun

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man, showing off his new gun, was beaten and robbed with it.

Van-Ness Calhoun told police that he was robbed about 11:30 Thursday night at the Westwind apartment complex on Dawson Road.

Calhoun reported that he was showing a black man his recently purchased handgun, when the suspect punched Calhoun in the face and took the pistol and then threatened him with the gun.

The suspect ran away.

Calhoun didn't want to go on camera, but told WALB Friday morning that he was not hurt, but only angry about what happened.
