Men make up robbery story

Two men reportedly lied about an armed robbery in an effort to cover up how they sustained injuries while playing with a pocket knife.

Police responded Wednesday to Doctors Hospital in reference to an attempted robbery and stabbing. One of the men stated that he and his friend were in his friend’s car where “they were messing around with a pocket knife.”

One of the men was bragging about how he could handle pain and the other man placed the point of the knife on his friend’s right knee and began pressing down, according to the report.

The knife then went through the man’s jeans and punctured his skin. After the incident the man who held the pocket knife passed out and fell to the ground, which is how he sustained his injury.

According to police, the two men’s stories matched and both admitted telling the hospital staff they were injured during an attempted armed robbery because they were embarrassed about the incident.

Runaways found with woman

A woman was arrested after police found two juveniles reported as runaways riding in her car with her.

Taylor McNatt was pulled over by Columbia County deputies on Southern Hills Drive on Tuesday.

According to police reports, McNatt stated she was aware that all three juveniles did not have permission from their parents to be out of the house.

McNatt was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was transported to the Columbia County Detention Center.

Truck lights left on inside gate

A work truck was found with its lights on and flashing inside a secured gate with nobody around.

Around 11 p.m. Tuesday, a Columbia County deputy reported the suspicious situation in the 1000 block of Longeran Hulme Road, at the Department of Transportation Headquarters.

The deputy contacted the key holder to the facility, who said no employees should be on scene. The deputy checked inside the property and found no other suspicious activity. The area was cleared and the gate was secured.
