Headphones tryout becomes armed robbery

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Americus police have a warning after a man was robbed at gunpoint over the weekend.

Police say the victim let a friend try out his headphones in this parking lot, and never got them back.    When he tried to get them back, the victim says the other person pulled a gun and refused to give them back.

"We should always be cautious and mindful about loaning, letting people use your cellphones, letting people hold your headsets. It always concerns us whenever a weapon is involved," said Interim Chief Herman Lamar of the Americus Police Department.      

The victim did not identify the robber to police, so no arrests have been made.
