The LaGrange Police Department is looking for a man who pointed a gun at two other men Wednesday on Waverly Way.

According to a press release from LPD, a Black male pointed a gun at two Hispanic men and gave them demands.

Due to the victims not speaking English, they were unable to understand the suspect’s request, according to LPD.

The victims told police the unknown male went through their pockets and took a cellphone before fleeing on foot.

He said that the front motion light-activated, and he observed the man throw the cellphone onto the ground.

The victims were uninjured in the incident, according to LPD.

At this time this case is under investigation with the Criminal Investigations Section.

The LPD is requesting anyone with information about this case contact the LaGrange Police Department, Troup County 911 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at (706) 812-1000.
