Man gets robbed after accepting a ride from strangers

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Moultrie man gets robbed at gunpoint after accepting a ride from three strangers.

Police say early Tuesday morning the victim was walking when a car full of strangers asked him if he wanted a ride.

The man hesitated but accepted and asked them to drop him off at the Cocomo Inn and Suites.

When they got there, the passenger pulled out a gun and told the man to give them everything he had.

They made off with 800 dollars and his shoes, but were later caught.

“If you don't know a person and they offer you a ride please do not get in the car with that person for your safety and you never know what there intentions are," says Investigator Eric Hill with the Moultrie Police Dept.

The three criminals are all from Tyler Texas.
